More Mothers

As today is Mother’s Day, I thought it would be a good idea to list all of the mothers we currently know of. I did this last year too (you can read that post here). Let’s start with the dogs…

Twee


Looking after Kim, Sheila, and their six brothers and sisters has clearly taken its toll – judging by the look on her face anyway. Twee is eleven-years-old.

Rua


Ben and Pip’s mum – see the resemblance to Miss Pip?

And the sheep…

Suckie

04-05-02-11 (6)
Mum to Georgia and Grace (who left the farm to find a better mum).

Darkie

12-02-11 (44)
Mother of Sam and Sylvia.

Bubbles

12-02-11 (16)
Mum of twins – one white male and one black female.

Tilly (Old)

26-27-02-11 (35)
Mum of Lily, a wonderful little ewe.

 

Tilly (Young)

12-02-11 (22)

Mum of twins, a ewe and a ram.

Speaking of mums, my Dad’s currently playing mum to a little lamb who’s mum won’t let him nurse.

Dad’s been calling him Archibald, or Archie for short.

He still stays with him mum because he likes the company.

Happy Mother’s Day!

  1. Wow, what a sweet post. Happy Mother's Day to all. Ours here in the US is next month. Nice idea to show us all of the great Moms. I especially like Darky and little Archy is adorable. You dad should get double pressies on his day since he's helping Archy out. :)
    Grr and Woof,
    Sarge, COP
