These beautiful twin lambs were born a few minutes before I took these pictures! I've come to know the staff, students and farm animals at this school very well over the years that I've been running and taking my dogs for their daily walk there and in the surrounding paddocks.. I see new calves arrive, but never on the day they're born. The two most recent calves I've named "Fred" and "Ginger" (!) and I feed them bread by hand each afternoon. As soon as they see me or the dogs, they come galloping across the paddock, knowing well what I have for them!
This afternoon, a very happy teacher called to me that twin lambs had just been born. Well, I was never so excited and, forgetting about the dogs, rushed to the paddock to see them. They were so tiny and stumbling to get on their feet, with mum nudging & licking them upwards! I think that was when I started to cry and didn't stop until the teacher asked me if I'd like to come with him and pick up one of the lambs and, with their mother following and bleating loudly, carry it to a shed where they would be safe and warm for the night.
I picked up this tiny, still wet little thing and held it close all the way to the shed! It was just one of those beautiful, never-to-be-forgotten moments!
