They have now returned to the shed and are with the other pet lambs.
There are often volunteers of all ages to help with the bottle feeding including one of my ex- colleagues and her family. Feeding a lamb is definitely quicker than feeding a baby.
My mum and my sister were also keen volunteers.
The ewes and lambs who need an extra eye kept on them are in a small field near the farm. This little paddock is know as Yew Tree despite there being no Yew in sight which in view of it's poisonous nature is probably just as well. The name like many of the fields has been handed down from at least the last two generations. The ewes in this field are having a little extra feed and one lamb has a couple of bottles a day to supplement it's mother's milk. Our volunteer visitors have also been helping with these.
Older daughter soon had Auntie Julie helping out with the new calves too.
Not everyone is keen on the attention being given to the new arrivals.
Do you suppose a cow can actually feel jealous?
