In order to help us check the ewes at lambing time we like to know how many lambs each ewe is expecting.  Bob the scanner visits us in February and ultrasounds every ewe.  We mark them with a colour on their wool depending on how many lambs they are expecting.

About a week before lambing is due to start we put all the ewes expecting one lamb in one field, ewes expecting two lambs in another field and all the ewes expecting triplets in another with Alfie our lama. You will have to come and stay here to find out why Alfie is in charge of the triplets.
