Yoohoo – she’s here!
I had been checking all morning – my alarm set for every hour. By lunchtime, nothing but Edna had sent everyone away to another field, including Madge who didn’t put up a fight or seem to mind. She was also pawing the ground and getting up and sitting down.
My alarm went off just as I had eaten my last bite and off I trekked to the furthest point of the field to find the new addition to our family
It started to rain so we made the decision to take the little family nearer the house. I led Edna and Daisy carried she-who-has-no-name.
We were slightly concerned that little lamb had not found the milk-bar but after some sage advice from a neighbour, we left them to it for a few hours.
I am now happy to report that little lamb has got the plot. Phew – the worry is immense, I can tell you.
So, that’s one hurdle over. I will let Edna introduce her baby to Madge tomorrow, I think. She is suprisingly calm and unstressed about not being her Mum. When separated she usually shouts her head off.
And I think I am in love! (little lamb is already trying out her legs – she does small bounces – and comes up to talk – oh my heart! ❤️)
