Lambs Drenched and Put Into (Part Of) The Orchard

I put up electric fence on the edge of the peach block nearest us. The verge there is quite wide and has lots of grass and mallow and other sheepish weeds. Karola and I then drenched all 49 lambs (Cydectin, meat withholding ten days) and I put them in this verge strip where they’ll stay over the weekend.  I noted that some of the lambs are quite enormous now – they’ve had abundant food for months – and so maybe Karola’s idea of selling some before she goes to England is a good one.
