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!

We are now about half way through lambing and Neil, our stock man has had a chance to take some photos.
The pregnant ewes are kept the lambing shed for warmth and comfort and so they can be closely watched. Once they have given birth they are moved to their own private rooms for a couple of days to make sure they are fit and well and then they can be released out into the fields. With the weather being how it is this Spring, each lamb is equipped with its own coat which keeps it dry but is mostly to protect against the cold wind.

Daytime, night-time, one combine or two, the small Denham estate team work so hard to get the harvest in each year – and when it’s all in, then on with the ploughing for the new crops.

There was a recent article on the Estate in British Farmer and Grower. After publication we got onto the photographer (Adam Fradgley of Exposure Photography), who came round, and bought the rights to the photos he took that day - 60 in total. We think there are some good ones here, some of the people who work on the estate and the rest of the animals.
