I am really lucky to have such a good little barn helper…
These are a couple Jacob x Blueface Leicester cross lambs. Their mom doesn’t have enough milk, so we are supplementing them. This has become Theron’s job and he is really good at it. If one of them doesn’t finish, he trys to hold onto them and put the bottle back in their mouth 🙂 He loves the fact that they will let him pet and cuddle them.
This is Peanut, he is my other barn helper, but not the helpful kind! He likes to follow me and chew on my pant legs as I am feeding. This morning I almost fell flat on my face due to him crawling between my legs as I was walking.
Here Theron is feeding our other supplemental, bottle lamb – yep, it’s Peanut. His mama only has half a bag due to an old shearing injury. I tried supplementing Peanut’s brother as well, but he wanted nothing to do with it and I was having to chase him down. Peanut was very happy to get the extra food, in fact he doesn’t even hang out with his mom and brother anymore. Unfortunately this has meant that I have to feed him more…
but he is so cute 🙂
Peanut is adorable! Is he lilac? Looks like you have a great helper in Theron. Hopefully Annie will be just as good. 😉 I think she will.
Had another lilac ewe last night! Ol’ Dub is pushing out the lilac ewes! 😀 I’ve got her up on my blog right now and have started another page for ‘Our Sheep.’
Hi mudranch – Yes, Peanut is a lilac.
Congrats on your lilac ewe lambs. They are adorable!
