Feeding lambs

As I mentioned in my post yesterday, I have started feeding some lambs for the winter.

They were penned last night beside the house, so it was just a case of feeding them again this morning and letting them loose.

First sight of the lambs this morning


This is the feed I’m giving them just now. Not the usual stuff, just some I bought in the local shop because I didn’t have any ‘proper’ stuff in.


The lambs soon worked their way over to the trough and got stuck in. Result.



I’m training them to respond to my voice as well; “trobhad” being the call to come for food. We’ll see if they come tomorrow, when I feed them early doors. This should make things easier in the long run.
