WARNING: Not For The Faint-Hearted

WARNING: the following photo may not be everyone's cup of tea!

This morning we woke up to find this poor girl having a spot of bother....I managed to get her in the shed, while mum raced off to pick dad up from work.
 *I spared you the graphic details and photos - but in between the 1st and 2nd photo was a difficult birth which resulted in the lamb being born, what we thought, dead.
But after just a minute or two, he suddenly came "alive" and started to improve from there.  He's a very strong brave boy!*

Here's dad helping it have it's first feed as mum was in a bit of shock and denial at this stage.

Here he is with his mum....and of course Charlotte had to get in on the photo too!
At this stage, mum wasn't accepting the lamb as well as we'd have like but she wasn't rejecting it and butting it out of the way like they normally do.  So we've put her and baby in a pen on their own and we've left them to it for a few hours.  We are pretty sure all will be fine from here on - but for those of you who are interested in some farm-ey stuff, I will let you know if anything changes!


  1. Great story, hope the mum is getting used to the idea of being a mum :-) Debi x

  2. So what's the update on this one? Does mum love her baby yet?


Really love reading your comments - thanks for taking the time! Tania
