Thank you for Lambcam, it has been completely addictive & we have loved watching. Its a couple of years since I was hands on but this is a wonderful substitute without getting cold!. The thrill of seeing new lambs enter the world never diminishes. Thank you for sharing your lovely 'clouds on legs' as my niece calls your ladies!

Hi Linda - So glad that you have enjoyed visiting and watching lambcam this year. Regarding the black ewe with one white lamb and one black lamb. - we don't need all our ewes to have pedigree lambs every year so a proportion of them go to a hybrid ram (Texel X Blue Faced Leicester). So both of the lambs belong to that ewe but they are hybrids.

Hi, visited St Fagan's again today to see the ewes and lambs (and ladies-in-waiting!) and noticed one black ewe in a pen with one black lamb and one white lamb. Just wondering if the white one has been 'adopted' by this ewe and if so, what is the story, please? We're really enjoyed visiting and watching lambcam - thank you!

Hi Gradon - I have checked with the farm team this morning and everything that lambed yesterday is doing well.

Hi Karen - the ewe with the E on her back belongs to Emma (our shepherd). She had a couple of pedigree Hill Radnor ewes that came for a special play date with our Hill Radnor ram.....
