Our 4 orphan lambs

We helped our farmer next door for 2 weeks with lambing, mainly looking after the ewes and lambs afterwards. There was plenty to do with making sure they had feed, water and clean straw every day.

Unfortunately, a couple of ewes were not interested in their lambs, so we started to bottle feed them. The other two lambs are twins from a set of quads, which would have struggled getting enough milk from the ewe.

In the end we decided to take them home to our farm and raise them. We are not lambing our own ewes for about 2 – 3 weeks, so those 4 will have a head start.
