Staff at Old MacDonald’s Farm have been giving our new little Lambs a helping hand.
One of the Ewes (female sheep) has been finding it quite difficult to feed her Lamb. Therefore staff have stepped in to give some support and lend a hand by doing the daily rounds of feeding, using a bottle and a specialized milk formula. The bottle fed Lamb, now named ‘Kevin’ according to staff, is growing healthier and stronger by the day.
The total number of Lambs so far at the farm has reached 11. Visitors to the farm have been very surprised at the number of early spring babies we have had. However, previous years at the farm have also seen early arrivals, despite the cold weather. Some other spring babies include Piglets and Kids (baby Goats).
