Just 30 minutes ago some new lambs (technically called hoggets aka teenage lambs!) arrived here at Fordhall! Situated in the field opposite my office window, I have been watching them eagerly munching the grass and suddenly a thought popped into my head - 'This must be like eating in a new restaurant for them.'!
The hungry young hoggets arrived with David Dawson from his organic farm near Nuneaton. He was bringing them in order for Ben to fatten up and sell in our farm shop. Barry the bull is in the same field - but I don't think he is very impressed with his new companions!
