Here are two of our lambs, Bunny belonging to Ferny Fern Fern from Ferntown and Wooly dropped by Bonny. Bunny is now our biggest lamb, he looks massive compared to Wooly as they play on the planks discarded by Spotty. We have been rounding up his treasured wood toys, one dog can have too many planks.
Just off camera is Mindy, she was our biggest lamb, a lively Ryeland like her mother Daffodil. But the colder weather the last few days and the return to warmer temperatures caused a bacteria sheep have in their respiratory system to activate and so our extremely large healthy lamb died of septicaemia within hours.
In fact by the time I took these pics and picked up the stricken lamb to take back to HQ she died after a couple of steps. Daffodil has been up and down the lane all day looking for her, even stopping off to "talk" to all of the militia's lambs on the border.
