decisions made and more good news..

look who arrived today :)




another little boy which kind of helped make up our minds regarding where these guys will live forever more, and more importantly with who...

they will both be banded (castrated) and will eventually join our happy group of last years lambs :)

how cute is he?




and the really great news is this mama has milk and is very protective of her baby...

lamb#1 also has good news to tell...




his very own mama has decided that even though she has no milk she would still very much like to be his mama..





so the plan is that they will stay together and the lamb will just be bottle fed by us...

i had my first feed today xx



we now have one ewe left to lamb....




and it seems that nora no ears is not in lamb...

the plan is to bring them all here on wednesday..

we have been fence erecting today and will be building shelters and buying lamb milk tomorrow...

the raffle is still good to go, we will be speaking to everyclick in the morning and if they are not able to help immediately then we will change it all to paypal..

either way we hope to be up and selling raffle tickets next week before everyone forgets about our sheep rescue!

and tomorrow i promise to post on something other than sheep :)

How lovely! My uncle is a farmer and I used to love the odd time when we looked after lambs in our kitchen and I got to bottle feed them. Looking back now it was sad their mums couldn't look after them, but as a child I loved cuddling them :) I'm glad your sheep are settling in well xxx
