This is just a quick entry to share with you our trip to the sheep farm yesterday - we actually saw a little baby lamb being born - I will give the full story with more pictures on Sunday. But what a wonderful thing to see - new life! It was really lovely.
This was when the lamb was just minutes old and the mum was licking him to clean him up. She was a first time mum and the farmers did have to encourage her at first.
This was the moment that baby Jim the lamb first suckled his mum - we watched as he struggled to his feet and then tried to find his food - we all had tears in our eyes. The children were mesmerized! What a great thing to see.
More pictures to follow tomorrow. I hope everyone is having a lovely weekend. Im sorry I havent read your journals I'm really behind on alerts!! Right Im going now to settle down to a film for the rest of my Saturday.
