We must be one of the few people who have had smiles on our faces over the last few days. The rain has made us very happy, we have needed it for a long time to help the grass grow to feed our flock over the summer and winter months as well. We have already shut the hay meadow gates to keep the sheep out and let the grasses grow for their winter forage. We feel so grateful we had the warm weather while we were lambing in March, the sheep don’t look too amused right now but the lambs are strong and able to put up with the wet, although we have moved some sheep off the meadows next to the River Thames onto higher ground, as they are not good swimmers! Some of you may remember Badger, who featured in our blogs during lambing, she is doing really well and charging around with all her friends. Our latest blog shows one of our sheep manoeuvres before it started raining, Roly had a bit of help and as you can see he needed it! www.camilllaandroly.blogspot.co.uk <http://www.camilllaandroly.blogspot.co.uk/>
