An Evening Walk and a Happy Ending

First up, and evening walk with the lovely Pip. The evenings are so much brighter now, so I can take pictures up until around 5 o’clock in the evening – a sign Spring is coming!

Of course, the walk was interrupted with some posing.

Oh, Pip… not another puddle! *Sigh*

I arrived home from school today, got changed and headed for the lambing sheds. I was afraid that Grace had died overnight, because she was in such a sorry state last night. I looked around and couldn’t find her in the Sucking Station. I feared the worst. I thought I was going to have to announce a death tonight. But no.

My Granny told me that a man had a ewe with two lambs, but both died. He came up here to find some replacements, and Dad offered him some healthy lambs, but the man saw Grace and decided that she would be perfect. He took her away to have a new mum on his own farm – a very happy ending for little Grace!

As for Suckie and Georgia? Not a care in the world!

  1. Sounds like a Happy Ending for little Gracie! That sounds perfect to me.

    Pip is a handsome dog, I can see why you take lots of pictures of him.

  2. Love the photo of Pip and the puddle...such a pretty girl (though I might be a bit partial as she looks a lot like my Cassie)...Must be nice to have such long evenings, we are still on 2 PM walks around here as the sun heads in so early! Can't wait for Spring!!

  6. A fine Irish evening with a lovely border collie! The sun has just set here at 5:45. If it wasn't so darn cold it would feel like Spring.
    Sounds like it has worked out for the best with both the man's lonely ewe and Grace:)

  9. YEAH!!! So glad for that outcome - I was really scared reading through all the back posts that I hadn't read over the past week that I'd see a sad post.
    I think Pip is one of the prettiest dogs I've ever seen. The photographer is pretty talented, too!

  15. Hi guys! Nice to meet you. You have a very nice blog & those little lambs are soooper cute! You are so lucky to be living on a farm. My hoomies have been dreaming of having a farm when we move to Australia or New Zealand one day. I think it would so fun to be living with other types of animals!
