THESE little lambs certainly have a touch of spring in their step.
The latest arrivals at East Durham College’s farm are attracting a lot of attention.
The lambs were welcomed into the world with a little help from animal care student Beverley Knox, who is more used to overseeing the arrival of puppies.
The Houghall Campus farm is set to welcome 170 lambs between now and Easter, so Beverley, 24, is readying herself for a busy few weeks.
She said: “The lambing was a little like helping at whelping.
“However, unlike a whelping, this will continue solidly for the next six weeks.”
With the average ewe being in labour for between one and three hours, farm manager Peter Whitfield has the very important task of keeping all the sheep and their lambs happy and healthy.
