At the moment I have two pet lambs, and considering that we've only 30 or so ewes left to lamb out of almost 300, it's not bad at all. This is Dave a few weeks ago:
He was born around the beginning of February, one of two. His mum didn't have enough milk for the two lambs, and Dave turned out to be the one who needed a helping hand. Now, at almost a month old, Dave the Dorset lamb is growing fast.
In the background is Gloria, Dave's fellow pet lamb. She's quite a bit smaller than him.
And in case we forget his name...
I'm teaching him to walk on a halter too.
He's got a very fluffy Dorset face.
