Cute Lambs In Spring

by Raintree

Spring lambs in the fields and new life in Spring is lovely. Here we celebrate lambs in photographs, quotes, poetry, and lamb information.

There is nothing quite like a beautiful lamb in a sunny spring meadow to warm the heart.
The sweet faces, cute bleeting voices and cheeky antics always make me smile and I look forward to fields of lambs each Spring. This page is simply a celebration of this time during Spring.

I admire the way the ewes protect the lambs and how amazing it is when they call to the lamb or the lamb calls to the ewe and they find each other in a huge field of sheep. I love seeing the lambs jumping around chasing each other and just full of the joy of young life! I love how inquisitive the lambs are and the cheeky looks they give.

To me seeing a field full of ewes and lambs is the essence of Springtime. There are many ways to celebrate this, beautiful poetry, photographs and pictures, costumes and toys for children. So here is a moment in time as we enjoy the lambs.

Please note all the photographs on this page were taken by me unless stated otherwise. Please do not copy.

Lambing On The Farm

 I used to help a shepherd every Spring wit the lambing on his farm. I loved helping out and found it a really magical time.

I was always amazed how the ewes used to give the birthing mother space and surround her as she gave birth. Many ewes had no trouble but some did and required the shepherd and sometimes the vet to intervene. 

Sadly very occasionally a ewe would die but the lamb would live. Also sometimes for some reason a ewe would reject one of her lambs headbutting it away and not allowing it to feed. The shepherd would try to get her to accept it but when that failed the lamb needed to be hand reared. This is intensive work and requires a lot of time but I really enjoyed helping out.

I used to look after the orphaned or rejected lambs when I could and particularly enjoyed feeding them. Their little tails would go like crazy!

Lambing Time Open Days

I carry a love of lambs and still visit a local college each year when they have their lambing open days.

The college are very careful that no sheep are crowded or distressed at all by people being there. All the sheep we saw were relaxed and the lambs very curious. 

I think the open days are a great idea as it educates children about sheep and lambing and is a very educational and fun day out in the Springtime.  All the photos I took here are from those open days.

How Many Lambs?

A ewe is usually pregnant for about five months. Most lambs in the UK are born in Spring in March or April.

Lambs can be born as single lambs, or quite often as twins. Some lambs are born as triplets or even quadruplets. However Twins are usually the most common.

On average lambs weigh about nine pounds when they are born.

The Lamb By William Blake

Little Lamb, who made thee?

Dost thou know who made thee?

Gave thee life, and bid thee feed
By the stream and o'er the mead;
Gave thee clothing of delight,
Softest clothing, woolly, bright;
Gave thee such a tender voice,
Making all the vales rejoice?
Little Lamb, who made thee?
Dost thou know who made thee?

Little Lamb, I'll tell thee,
Little Lamb, I'll tell thee:
He is called by thy name,
For he calls himself a Lamb.
He is meek, and he is mild;
He became a little child.
I a child, and thou a lamb.
We are called by his name.
Little Lamb, God bless thee!
 Little Lamb, God bless thee!
