We Managed to Get the Rams Shorn in Time for the Hot Weather.
Here is one of our Southdowns before:
And here he is after:
Practically a different animal!
The Denham Castle lambs are growing apace and have now been weaned onto silage aftermath (that's three weeks of fresh growth after silage has been cut, basically a fresh, clean un-grazed field).
With fawning now finished the bucks have reached full antler growth and will start to shed velvet in the next two weeks.
All we need now is the weather to dry off a bit and then harvest will start next week which will keep everyone very busy!
