Over the weekend, we marked the merino lambs. It’s one of those events on the farm by which we mark the progress of the year. Of course when I say “we” I mean it in a generic us sense, rather than specifically me. My job is to keep an eye on the kids (and take a few photos). The kids love to catch the lambs and give them a cuddle, and the guys who come and help mark the lambs are always glad to see the kids, and love to have them ‘help’, even if it does take a little longer.
