Here in Outdoor Work we’re smack bang in the middle of one of the most exciting times of year.
Lambing began last week, all safely delivered and thriving, all of them preposterously cute. There are now only three ewes left to lamb. And these are not our only new arrivals. Thanks to the BPA’s generous gift of an incubator, our chicks are now nearly a month old. They are all doing well, in fact they seem to be growing by the minute and we can’t wait to get them outside. See photos below.
However, spring also brings some sad news from the sty: Angelica sadly passed away last week, not long after her piglets got their first taste of freedom in the woods (pictured right). Watching them race each other around the enclosure was lovely; they looked so excited and inquisitive, Angelica will be sadly missed.
