Bed time feed for these little angels! First time treating them with a subcutaneous injection, oral drench & giving their feet a trim. Helped by an experienced shepherd who gave me some excellent tips, I'm now feeling more confidant & these guys are nice and healthy & protected against any nasties. Successful shepherdess day! #lambs#shepherdess#devonclosewools#rarebreeds#nativebreeds#rbst
There has been so much going on around the farm, these three black beauties have not had the attention they deserve. It's easy to forget about them because they really are so easy to manage & look after themselves. Aside from feeding & watering them, they neither want nor care for extra attention & are quite content snuffling around in the dirt with minimal interference! Thank heavens for pigs! They really are the best farm animals 😍🐷❤ #pigs#bestfarmanimal#largeblackpigs#rarebreeds#rbst
I’m pretty sure Jack was a vegetarian with his bean stalk.
Most beans contain 18-22 gms protein* plus the Iron is very important. Iron deficiency is one of the most common in the 🌎
It can lead to anemia, tired and weakened immune system and impaired brain function (esp when considering all the other chemicals in the food chain that make their way to your immune system)
There are two types of Iron. Heme-iron(animal) and NON-heme iron (plant). Apparently our body absorbs Heme-iron better than the plant based Non-heme.
If your gonna digest it, make sure it’s grass fed. No #antibiotics#steroids#antiinflammatory#hormones like #RBST and the list of standard drugs the #FDA#DOA pass off as safe. 👀 ↩
Amazon has a product called “Ancestral Supplements” that’s contains heme-iron from grass fed cows.

Welcome to the world little ones! 🐷🐽🐖
Mummy Emily had her gorgeous ‘pedigree’ Gloucestershire Old Spot piglets over the weekend - this is fantastic news as the breed is currently classed as 'At Risk' by the #RBST 😮😍
Our rare breeds are so important with many carrying key characteristics that keep our wider flocks strong as well as being wonderful in their own right! We wouldn’t be without our Whiteface Dartmoor girls who are perfect for our ground and business as well as giving us the popular mule fleece. Consider rare breeds when you buy sheep, fleece and meat. #rbst#teeswater#whitefacedartmoor#useitorloseit#rbstdevon see the Rare Breed Survival Trust Website for the rest of the image and more information on these wonderful breeds!
The @rbstrarebreeds has done a great job of promoting and monitoring our native livestock breeds and the latest Watchlist is out today - I would love to have loads of these breeds but chose the Wensleydale as it’s an indigenous Dales sheep. Still rare, still at risk. Would also be nice to have some Northern Dairy Shorthorn cattle which were the milk breed of choice in lots of the Dales #rarebreed#rbst#nativebreed#gonative#farm#farmlife
I will be taking some of my Portland sheep and their cute lambs to Woolfest this year. Pop along to see them and have a chat. I will also be selling some portland fleece in the fleece sale. Remember you can leave your purchases at the RBST wool creche - all donations go to supporting our British rare breeds.
This scripture hit home for me.
12 Turn you to the strong hold, ye prisoners of hope: even to day do I declare that I will render double unto thee;
I never thought God would even think to double anything In my life. Who am I to deserve such a thing called double. I must watch what I think negative and say negative out my own mouth. For my thoughts must be changed by ME renewing my mind first. My choice is to allow God to cleanse my thoughts for I shouldnt think or utter a negative thought in my mind. For there’s power in the tongue.
I can not forget about the mind because that where everything begins..... #RBST
