Spring lambs at Oxley

Oxley Dairy has been blessed with the sight of spring lambs growing from a few weeks old, gaining confidence, going on adventures.

At first, they stayed close to mum then gradually they teamed up with another lamb close by getting braver. Although mum did become very vocal if they drifted too far, especially in the evening at ‘bedtime’.

By the time they were ready to be moved to another pasture, some of the lambs were in gangs of  7-10 charging up and down the field then running to the top of a muck heap in the corner then back down again  playing ‘follow my leader’.  The funniest thing was watching the littlest one who couldn’t keep up, stopping half way and waiting for the gang to come back then tagging on the end again!
