Lambing Season

DSC04559aWe have approximately 500  merino sheep on our farm, Klein Soebattersvlakte  and "lambing season" started 3 weeks ago. With all the rain of the past 3 weeks it is challenging to keep them healthy. This is a vital step before or during the lambing season as the mother will leave the lamb if she is not well. During this time we have raised only 5 orphaned lambs.

ÂBlog Alpaca

Austin is the "herd manager" he is a male Alpaca and very proud of his herd and all his "children". It is very interesting to see him protect and guide the lambs during handling of the specific herd. He walks in front of the herd and leads them into the handling kraal.

 

When we seperate the lambs from their mothers to protect them from being tramped on, Austin fights to be on the side where we keep the lambs. He will lie down and the lambs will calm down and be all around him.

Our precious kelpy - Shiloh is over eager to gather all the sheep and assist Austin in his guideance, but Austin does not allow anything or anyone who looks like a jackal close to the herd or the lambs, therefore Shiloh works from the back of the herd and she works very gently and as we get closer to the kraal she will lie down and wait for instruction to just nudge gently.
