sleepless nights, bottle feeding – definitely still lambing at Kensmyth! http://www.kensmyth.com/sleepless-nights-bottle-feeding-definitely-still-lambing-at-kensmyth/ Thu, 16 Mar 2017 21:29:36 +0000 http://www.kensmyth.com/?p=3263 Well its lambing time across the UK and Kensmyth is no exception. A grand idea with the beautiful rare breed Wensleydales and just time to get them all down and organised before the Alpaca start birthing…

With livestock there are always issues at birthing and some lambs are born just too small and need a little help…

brings back memories with tiny teats for premature Alpaca having been bottle fed… here we go… again!

Alpaca flock guards at Kensmyth – and weighing ahead of next rains http://www.kensmyth.com/alpaca-flock-guards-at-kensmyth-and-weighing-ahead-of-next-rains/ Sun, 12 Mar 2017 10:24:15 +0000 http://www.kensmyth.com/?p=3249 Everyone who reads our blogs or who has visited knows how tight a ship we run on Biosecurity and we do not mix Alpaca with sheep – despite the fact that Alpaca are amazing flock guards for lambs.

First turn out for the Black Wensleydales on a sunny day recently and the Alpaca stood as close as their 8ft lane would permit them to get a better look and be on guard!

ahead of the rain though, time to weigh the Alpaca – you can just read this says 80.2 kg!

Our first White Wensleydale at Kensmyth made her debut appearance in the early hours…

Laid Back Lamb at Marks & Spencer – I don’t think so! http://www.kensmyth.com/laid-back-lamb-at-marks-spencer-i-dont-think-so/ Tue, 07 Mar 2017 19:25:26 +0000 http://www.kensmyth.com/?p=3230 I saw this in the Marks & Spencer in Cirencester and it did make me laugh…

would you like one? said Hubby…

Not at that price but thank you, I replied!

Fifteen pounds for some chocolate? I don’t think so.

Meantime Kensmyth Wensleydale lambs are doing well!
