April 2008

The spring is here and I have spent 2 weeks lambing as part of my EMS, which was an amazing experience. In the run up to Easter we had a lot of preparation in our animal husbandry classes for lambing including lectures and practicals which really helped but were no substitute for the real thing! I spent my time on a farm in Yorkshire with a lovely farmer Ellie, who breeds pedigree Border Leicester sheep. We worked very hard- the days were very long and demanding- most days we were getting up at 6:30 and working through until the evening, and like with most farming, no days off!
I have just found out that I have passed the exams which I took before Easter (hooray!) and the course now is very much gearing on reviewing the course material for the main May exams so we are having lots of review sessions and tutorials to help us go over the course for revision.
