Newborn Lamb

Our friend Michael & Vera’s final lamb was born a few weeks ago and I ALMOST made it for the birth…..I jumped in my car as soon as I got the call but 5 minutes later when I arrived he had already made his debut! His first time Mamma Penny Plum was doing a very thorough cleaning job when I arrived

About 20 minutes later Aldo was let back into the pasture to meet his newest charge Winston

Amazingly he started cleaning up too immediately

The sheep are still in the barn every night – getting them to follow when they are passing up tasty grass is getting more and more difficult!
