October - saw our first Herdwicks arrive at Home Farm. Only 3, but they are trouble enough! Quiet but can escape from anywhere! My kitchen door was open - I found them in my lounge!
December at Home Farm and all the pregnant ewes are in for scanning. Nervous as always as we do not use a raddle (paint) on our rams - it makes a bit of a mess of their lovely fleece!
Delighted with our scanning results of nearly 200%. However, 28 are triplets and 2 are quads!! Another investment needed at Home Farm – our very own monster milk machine.

Pregnant ewes - red head = triplets, green head = twins, blue head = single
Scanning - single lamb
Following our great success with the hand dyed Aran, 4 ply, DK and Big Wool - my sister has been keeping herself busy over the holidays ...
