So I was dutifully completing a project for Colaiste when my phone began to ring. It was farmer Richie, who informed me of 2 additions to the farm.
Lambs! 2 lambs!
So at a pace approaching the speed of sound, I was up and grabbing the nearest camera and hopping about whilst simultaneously trying to get a coat and farm shoes on (my farm shoes are an asics graveyard, all my old ones!) and not drop aforementioned camera. Having completed all of the above to the best of my ability (i.e. coat buttoned up wrong and 2 left shoes on) I flew out the door looking wildly for fluffball looking mini sheep. Up the hill and over the gate and there they were in the far corner. I didn’t want to panic mammy sheep as she may actually have another lamb, these are just born, so I just snapped a few photos.
We got a new Ram this year, and I call him Panda-ram.
Ok I’ll tell you, he looks like a panda. I know, I know, it’s seriously cryptic. But this here ^^ is like a genetics lecture. He has panda lambs too. It’s a panda phenotype.
I just.. They are so so cute.
Awww, it fell down! Mammysheep is quite concerned.
After this I decided to give them all a bit of a break and left them in the corner. We’ll go up later and bring them into the hayshed for the night where its all lovely and warm and dry!
Right. So. We do need to name our lambs so I am looking to you for suggestions!
Leave a comment with your ideas and I’ll choose 2 out of them for these. Remember to make appropriately cute 🙂
