EWE beauties!

Visitors to Whirlow Hall Farm were given a special treat when they witnessed an early arrival.

The group was enjoying a talk by the farm team when a ewe went into labour.

Farm manager Richard Aldis and his assistant Ash Malia noticed the ewe was having difficulties so began helping with the birth – and visitors were fascinated when twins were born.

Richard said: “Those who witnessed the event couldn’t believe their luck at seeing this special moment so closely. The buzz around the farm was electric.”

For those who missed it, Richard says there is an Easter lambing event on Tuesday, April 10.

Since the lambs’ arrival there have been more multiple births with nine piglets, two ducklings and lamb triplets all making an appearance, followed by a second lot of twins a few days later.

The farm says all mothers and babies are doing well.
