Farmlife Framed photos: Little lambing helpers and changing seasons

As ever, we have been snowed under with our readers’ brilliant farming photos – we love seeing them, so please do keep them coming in.

This time we have picked a handful of excellent snaps that show the shifting of the seasons, from a bitter winter to something a little more like spring.

Your farm selfies are guaranteed to bring a smile to the face of even the most grumpy of farmers. This time we are sharing a selection from the thick of the lambing season.
