First lamb ar­rives

Kapi-Mana News - - NEWS - By KRIS DANDO

Spring has come early on at least one Pau­ata­hanui prop­erty, with the first lamb of the sea­son born re­cently.

Anne Hod­son, who lives on Mur­phy’s Rd, says the fe­male lamb was spot­ted on July 22. The lamb’s mum is hand- reared and very friendly and both are do­ing fine, Ms Hod­son said.

‘‘I think the sheep have got a bit mucked up with their tim­ing but that may be down to the very mild win­ter. Some peo­ple hold the rams back a bit but we don’t, we have a good pad­dock for them.’’
