Meet Tim the bottle lamb

We were surprised yet again with a yearling ewe lambing with twins.  Sadly we lost the little ewe sis soon after birth and worried about this little one we got him to take a bottle.  He is coming 3 wks old and now up to 11 lbs.  He is still with his mother ewe so he thinks and acts like a lamb/sheep.  He just likes to run up and say hi if I have a bottle in my hand.  We will wether him so he may be a farm pet or company for other rams or ewes during weaning time.  Since he was so small at birth we named him Tiny Tim.

Tiny Tim, Gladys and Ruby Tuesday

Needing to wean a pair of October lambs I put Ruby Tuesday (panda faced) ewe in with Gladys and her lamb to give them both sheep company.  Gladys walks well on a lead but not knowing how they would all react being out in the field today I figured I better work a little on walking manners. Ruby Tuesday has a huge flight response to anything so it was really for her we put leads on and  wore them all day.  Hopefully next time is easier for her.

In a container....

What is it about containers and lambs.  So many climb in after the food has been eaten and take a nap or time out.
