We got a phone call last week from some friends who had a lamb that had a mother who wouldn't take him. He was the smallest lamb I have ever seen. Smaller than our cat. I wasn't going to take him, knowing the work involved and figuring he never got any colustrum to start. Well our youngest has a birthday on Monday, and she said that this would be her present. So for ten days, we've doctored this guy through scours and constipation, sniffles and a bum leg. So here's a pic, not of him, but he does look like this:
He's a Barbados Blackbelly Sheep.
And here's what he'll look like when he grows up:
Nice looking pet? He's adorable now, though.
Off to enjoy the sunshine.
