Lambing sheeps in England
Every year in the spring, farmers seek veterinary medicine students to help them lambing sheeps. This is a third-year course that I had not taken yet, but when a friend asked if I would like to go lambing sheeps in England, I immediately said YES and bought the bundle lambing and was on my way to lambing sheeps in England.
The farm was in Redditch close to the birthplace of Shakespeare Staton-Upon-Avon and Birmingham. You got there by traveling to London with Eurolines and taking the bus there to Birmingham. In Birmingham take the local bus to Redditch and be picked up in Redditch.
When we arrived the farmer turned out not to have slept for nights because the sheep were lambing. So he casually announced you’re holding the fort tonight and I’m going to sleep. He said not to wake him up. I went through the bundle once more and started the evening in good spirits.
The first sheep to lamb the young one was turned in the womb. We called the farmer and angry that he was. He really didn’t want to be waken up at night. So from then on we learned fast to lamb the sheeps and didn’t wake the farmer anymore at night. We had the night shift for 40 days and saw about 500 lambs being born.
A beautiful spectacle at night, those sheeps and lambs, but disastrous for your day and night rhythm. A beautiful experience, I would do it again. I just don’t know if I remember the details of lambing sheeps. 🙂
