Children from Penninghame Nursery in Newton Stewart joined Cream o’ Galloway’s ‘Meet the Lambs’ event this week.

They were delighted to meet some of the ewes and their lambs born on the farm at Rainton and were astonished to learn that the lambs they cuddled were just one day old.

Staff and parents said the visit had been a great success. Now in its 10th year, this popular event welcomes local nurseries and playgroups from across the region for the two weeks before the school holidays start. Helen Fenby from Cream o’ Galloway said: “It’s wonderful to be able to offer this free opportunity for local children to get a first hand experience of holding a lamb.”

‘Meet the Lambs’ will run daily during the school Easter holidays at Cream o’ Galloway.
