Newborn lambs at school farm have the James bond connection
NEWBORN lambs at Saffron Walden County High School Farm will have a license to thrill at an open day this Saturday.
The Ryeland sheep have once again produced a fine brood, with all the young lambs taking on a James Bond connection. Audley Jess was the first to give birth, in the early hours of March 4, to Sean, followed by Neave in the morning with twin ewes, Scarlett and Sky, and lastly Norah who had a single ram, Samson.
Students then watched last Thursday when Naomi gave birth to ewe Saffron and ram Sherlock. It is hoped Lulu will follow shortly.
The lambs will be on show at the farm’s popular Easter event on Easter Saturday, from 2-4pm. Visitors will also be able to see the other animals on the farm including Dexter cattle, goats and free range chickens, ferrets and fancy rats in the small livestock area, and rabbits and guinea pigs in Pet’s Corner.
There will be an Easter Egg Hunt, raffle and produce stall.
