Lamb Marking

Yesterday we took advantage of the nice day and marked our lambs.  They now all have orange ear tags to mark them as a 2010 drop.  They also have rings on and are almost ready to be weaned.

We don't have sheepyards so it was a bit tricky catching them and getting organised but with the creative use of a roundyard and a few sheep panels we managed. 

I am dreaming of owning this portable sheepyard trailer before we have to do this again next year.
