Four weeks ago we had adorable boy and girl twin lambs born to one of our Suffolks out of season. Unfortunately 2 weeks after they were born their mother died of unknown causes. Luckily, there is a lovely sense of community in the country, and we were able to drop the orphaned lambs off at the pre-school down the road with some milk powder, and the children there have been bottle feeding them for us three times a day and giving them lots of love and attention.
Yesterday one of our Dorsets gave birth too (I suspect we have a couple more on the way as well). Mother and lamb seem to be doing well, as are the rest of the flock.
