Swaledale Lambs Chase and Play
Racing and chasing teach lambs to be part of a flock
The end of the day is when you often see groups of lambs suddenly taking off together and racing round the edges of the field. It starts with three or four of them grouping up together. Then a few more will join them and all of a sudden off they go – racing and chasing to the other end of the field until they come to an abrupt stop. They group up again and quick as lighening they gallop back – leaping and jumping as they go. Its most amusing to watch but its not for our entertainment its all part of learning to be a member of the flock.
