We've had a busy week since starting back - we got all the lambs in on Monday, and weighed them. We are taking two Ram lambs off to the Abattoir next week, as they are definitely ready - they weighed 44 kilos.
Wednesday and Thursday, the students have been getting the site ready for our 'Hedge Planting'. We had a delivery from Woodland Trust, with 400 hedging plants - Dog Roses, Crab Apples, Elder, Hazel and Blackthorn. We have starting planting them round the site with the help of some very willing volunteers today! We have also been busy making Christmas Decorations to sell at the Christmas Fair at the end of November (Thank mainly to our volunteer helpers; Linsey and Trish!)
We are hoping for another good turnout of volunteers tomorrow to help with more Hedging!

Update - we took the two ram lambs off to the abbatoir yesterday - they were by far the best looking of about 30! They will be ready a week on Thursday, so get your orders in! We have moved our 4 ewes to a new field with good grass ready for Dandy's visit.
