The Little Hawkwell flock of Exmoor Horn Sheep

In 2012 we bought 3 Exmoor Horn Ewe Lambs that had been bred earlier that year (in January) and 4 breeding Ewes for tupping in August September of that year.

So we were set for our first experience of lambing in 2013. The ewes we bought came from different flock and were all used to breeding at different times. As a result our lambing experience started with the birth of a Ewe Lamb on the 31st January and was completed on the 25th April 2013 with a Ram lamb in between came a set of triplets (one of which never made it) and a set of twins, yielding us 6 lambs to add to our flock.

For our first year of showing we “bought” an old ram to give us a reasonable sized show team and embarked on the 2013 showing season……
