Busby lambs

First of the Spring lambs. These do look a week or so old. Near to Great Busby. Lambing is planned so that the best price is obtained when the lambs are eventually sold as a glut of lambs coming to market at the same time will mean a lower price. Some farmers in the south lamb before Christmas, but of course, too early is risking a bad spell. It will be another five weeks until some upland moor flocks begin to lamb.

The Lamb a poem by William Blake 1757-1827

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