NEW Year’s Eve celebrations started early at Tatton Park’s Home Farm, with the birth of four early spring lambs.
Two of the farm’s ewes gave birth on New Year’s Eve, and by midnight the farm had welcomed one ewe and three rams to the Home Farm family.
Jayne Chapman, farm co-ordinator, said: “We were hoping the ewes would lamb during the Christmas season.
“However, despite the best laid plans, they arrived a little later than expected and just nudged into the world on the eve of 2008.”
Jayne added: “As the new ones are yet to be named, we hope our visitors will come and make some name suggestions.”
