The boys (rams) had their raddles fitted recently. Raddles? They are a vital piece of shepherding equipment which is like a harness and has a coloured crayon to mark the girls (ewes) when they have been served. This helps us plan when the ewes will have their lambs and when to invite our visitors to the farm to share in the amazing experience of lambing. Basil is wearing his raddle for the first time and seems to know exactly what to do. Please see our latest blog for photos and to find out more http://www.camillaandroly.blogspot.co.uk/
