A Tale Of Two More Beds


This may be hard to see, but I know what it is and it's a good and fun memory.  I'll try to explain it.  What looks like one leg and house slipper is actually both of my legs and feet smushed into a tiny space between where Early wants to sleep in front of the sink and the comfy, spacious cage where he could sleep. 

This is Early's spot.  This is not my spot.  If he decides he wants to lay down and take a nap while I am standing in his spot, he unapologetically wedges himself in there pushing me out of the way.  It is His Spot.  We have adult sheep that sleep in the same spots every night, but I've not seen a lamb do this.  It's very hard to wash dishes this way...but it's darling so I let him.

I don't have a picture for the second tale.  I wish I did, but it's too dark to try to take one.  Early is in good order and a good, quiet, happy lamb.  He could easily sleep in the kitchen at night by himself now, but I'm having fun camping out with him and the dogs, so I'm still there.  

My bed is just to the left of where he's sleeping in the above picture, my pillow where the blue towel is.  Because Early reliably sleeps in front of the sink, I haven't locked him in the dog crate at night. He curls up and sleeps there all night (we get up for a middle of the night baba still), but in the morning I turn my head to look for him and find his nose up on my pillow.

There is nothing better than waking up sharing a pillow with a sweet lambie :-).

I'm sorry most of Early's pictures and stories are being posted on my "quick" social media feeds (Instagram, Facebook and sometimes Twitter), but between taking care of him, the baby chicks, Lamb Camp and daily work here, I just can't seem to pull it all together right now.  Whew!

Here is a cute video of Early when he's not sleeping.  He's a very bouncy lamb and might be able to run faster than Maisie!  Must be the tails ;-).

I understand completely. Our cats are only a little bit spoiled.

For someone so tiny he rules his world, just as he should. He must be one of your best bottle lambs ever to sleep so well at his age.

Have a great day with all you are doing.

Do you get to keep him once bottle feeding is done? I hope so, and hope he keeps his propeller tail!

Washing dishes is so over-rated! Now, sleeping with lambs is REALLY cool!
