Lambing is a busy time for any farmer that lasts from late winter till late spring. It's also a lovely time for kids! Reward them with a visit to a farm to see nature's work for themselves. You can even participate in bottle feeding the lambs. You can clench them, pat their soft swirled wool. Lambs are very attentive and watch the visitors intently. They often run in pairs. Adult lambs are not particularly shy, but they won't allow you too close.
