DELIVERING their first baby can be a challenge for any student midwife.

So imagine the task of farmyard apprentices who are poised to welcome 84 sets of triplets, 218 pairs of twins and 78 single lambs this weekend.

Students and staff are expecting to deliver more than 700 little bleaters at Sparsholt College, near Winchester.

Visitors can watch the lambs being born and shepherding skills as the agricultural college opens its gates to the public for its annual lambing weekend.

Sparsholt College is open to the public for lambing weekend on Saturday and Sunday from 9.30am to 3.30pm.
