Daily Dose Of Lamb Sweetness


For your afternoon cup of coffee ;-).  

Lambs love sleeping in feed tubs.  I think sometimes it's because they are warmer, but this afternoon was sure warm enough, so maybe it's just extra fun to sleep there.  The pink stripe down the back of this lamb's head is a mark to make sure she and her (also marked) sister don't get moved out of the nursery pen too soon.  One of the sisters has a slight limp that is being monitored. Could be an injury, could be a selenium issue, could be...  I really appreciate the knowledge shared by good shepherds. So much to learn.

Perhaps the lambs like to feel snuggled up and surrounded, sort of like they felt in Mom's womb.

It's obviously the lamb version of a cat and a box. Cat says, "I see a box, I sit in it." ��

Is there another way to identify the lamb without placing a harsh tag in their ear...like maybe a chip or something. I always wonder how I wo uld feel walking around with a big tag on my ear....maybe they get used to it..I am just windering as I see it on many livestock...

I'm so grateful for your postings! We have no sheep here to coo over.

I agree with Patty Lee.....like human babies need snuggling/wrapping. Very sweet what ever the reason.
