Welcome to part two of my "Going Soft Saga" (the first being Ducky). I suppose being unable to save Nobby has left me on a mission to save as many lambs as possible. The latest save is young Bob here:
Could I have found a more conspicuous lamb?
As soon as they saw him, my lambs literally fell over each other to get away. They'd never seen a sheep quite like Bob before.
Of course Suckie has seen it all before, and it wasn't long before Bob naturally gravitated towards her.
I bought Bob from my hairdresser (as you do). He's a wether (castrated male), a about the same age as my lambs, and he's a Zwartable-cross-Texel which accounts for his unusual colouring.
He's not used to being photographed even while he's eating.
Better hide behind Suckie.
He is a very unusual looking chap. I'm giving him a chance to be saved from becoming lamb chops. Hopefully he can stay for a good while. He's not tame, but he has a quiet nature. Lots of bribery should bring him around.
Welcome, Bob. Please do stay a while.
