All the ewes have been scanned and delighted with the results which include three sets of triplets, one of which is from our Greyface Dartmoor Ewe Lara.  This will be the first time that any of our Dartmoors have had triplets.

Greyface Dartmoor with her twinsThe Lambing Courses start 4th February and the ewes lambing dates are for all of February which gives a good choice of dates to choose from.  We always try to fit in the courses to when ewes are due and give them some leeway either side of the date so that attendees will see a lambing during the time at Oakberrow.

The course also covers the feeding of the ewes and the after-care for lambs as well as the signs of when a ewe is going to lamb and actual lambing and problems with the different presentations of the lambs.

A good lunch is also provided!

If interested, please get in touch to book your spot.  Tel 01531 640102/07971675162 or dsg.oakberrow@gmail.com.
