Ewe are going to love Snettisham Park Farm's adorable January lambs




These are the first pictures of the January lambs at Snettisham Park Farm.

They were given birth to by eight mothers, who all had triplets or twins.

Trevor and Colleen Walters, farm managers at Snettisham, have been lambing ‘24/7’, with a whopping 106 sheep expecting 200 lambs.

Trevor said: “There’s something very special about new life, it tells us spring is coming and it’s a really feel good feeling.”

The lambing would usually be enjoyed by the farm’s visitors and they hope to reopen in March, the next phase of the lambing season.

Trevor said: “This is usually something we share with the public and we hope they can be with us once again to enjoy all the aspects of lamb rearing. There’s just me and my wife here at the moment, but we keep going because that is what a shepherd does.”

The pair manage to eat and sleep before they go out again to assist the ewes, and have done an incredible job of bringing these lovely lambs into the world during the pandemic, when they would usually have more people on the farm to help out.

Snettisham Park is a a 329-acre working farm whichhas a 400-strong flock of sheep.
