I am on my last week of Tertiary Teaching studies and
I have been seriously side tracked with lambing duties.
Locking the sheep up at night to protect them from the foxes
Letting them out again in the morning.
Sheep seem to like routine and are no trouble to put away.
It's a great purpose for a walk with the dogs, morning and night
We had a white out fog this morning that left many spider webs
highlighted with dew. Beautiful.
Shelia is getting older and slower.
The sheep catch up and pass her now.
On Sunday our fourth set of twin lambs were born.
By Monday morning their mother had died, lamb birth complications.
I brought them home,
so now I am doing the four hour feeds.
Thankfully they have gotten the idea of drinking from the bottle!
I wore a lot of milk trying to teach them.
Seriously cute, this brother and sister duo seem strong.
I wonder how long I have to feed them milk?
There are many more lambs to come,
I hope these are the only orphans.
It will be hard not to get attached to them as
they climb all over me when they feed.
The boy on the left head butts a lot and
they both like chewing the buttons on my jumper.
