Didn't think being tired, cold and mucky could be so much fun. Absolutely loved it and learnt a lot.
Thank you to the whole team for such an inspiring course. It was amazing being able to deliver a lamb.
Couldn't have asked for a better 24 hours.
Thank you so much for a dream come true since watching "Lambing Live"!
What a wonderful 24 hours - I can't recommend the experience enough. Everything I expected... and more.
