More Lambs

"Corky" (on the left) has a new friend (on the right) another rejected lamb. Last Saturday, April 25th we went to town and two ewes had given birth while we were gone.

One of them had triplets and since some sheep can't count higher than 2 this little cutie got the boot. Momma wanted nothing to do with her. And she was the smallest, I guess nature has a way of knowing these things. In the wild or out on the range this little female would have perished.

These two are her siblings. All three were very similar in appearance except for slightly different coloring.

So now "Corky" has someone to keep her company and we now have two bottle fed lambs. Sophie the ewe that kept stealing babies also had a lamb on Saturday. She only had one, a little black one and now she is perfectly happy and has stopped trying to take other lambs. Even to the point where she won't adopt either of these two orphans.

Below are some cute pictures of Corky and Midge (short for midget) being perfectly happy to share a pen together.


Until Next Time
