Marriner Flock | It’s scanning day at Marriner Farm…

Written by

  
A few weeks ago, our ladies of the Marriner Flock were paid a visit for their routine scan.

Chris stopped by the Marriner Farm and saw every single ewe to determine how lambs she may be carrying.

The ladies are sent through a special run, that allows Chris access to place a probe on the udder. This will then send out soundwaves, which bounce back and present an image of the lambs on the screen. Just as you would see in a human ultrasound examination.

Depending on the number of lambs the ewes are carrying, they are then marked with blue, red, or green. This distinction is important as it allows us to easily tell which of our ladies is carrying one lamb, twins, or triplets.

These ewes can then be separated, so we can be sure that those who are carrying two or more lambs receive more…

Rocking the winter coat!

The flock are embracing their winter coats as the weather has changed recently – but no snow here quite yet.

However, there’s no time for a haircut at the moment! It’s busy busy busy at the Marriner Farm. All of the ewes have been separated according to the number of lambs they are carrying, so we can ensure they are all getting enough food and shelter to grow happy and healthy little lambs.

Even the rams have been on the move – relocated to pastures new to give the ladies the room (and peace and quiet!) they need at the moment. They will be reacquainted once more come November time

We’ll be keeping a close eye on the ladies over the next few weeks as the lambing approaches – we can’t wait to introduce you even more of the sweet little guys!

Marriner Flock | The little ones are all grown up…

Written by

The lambs are now around 7 months old, and no longer the tiny little things we once knew back in the spring. They’re still lively, sprightly and cheeky, but now all grown up. Because of this, at the end of the summer it was time to separate them into a different field to give their mums a chance to rest and recover.

While the lambs are no longer dependent on the milk from their mother, they will still take milk as and when they want to – and given that they are no longer the…
