Warning, farm type blog post happening...
It's been a busy week here at our wee lifestyle block. There's been loads of exciting spring activities, and some sad ones.
One of the exciting things to happen over the last week was the arrival of two new lambs. It's lovely to see them bouncing around the paddocks.
But something else exciting happened this week too. Wait for it......
It was exciting that the lambs were still alive after the mother had had so much trouble during her labour, and it lasting for 8 hours or more.
But sadly she lost a lot of her internal organs and the vet had to put her down. I felt silly sitting in the middle of the paddock holding her head and crying.
I bought her 2 wee lambs inside and they slept the night in our laundry. A ewe lamb born first and a ram lamb.
What a joy.
Would you like to come help me bottle feed them?
Hope you're all having a lovely weekend,
See you soon,
