There are five new photographs on the Photo page, starting from number eleven. I am sure that there must be some good photographers who have not yet sent any photographs in for the Photo page.

This is what we woke up to this morning and yet on Easter Saturday 1987 Harold and I were married and it was a glorious day. Elsie.

When we went to feed the animals this morning another of the Ewes had Lambed. At first we thought that she had had a single Lamb. With a Lamb bleating out non stop we realised that she had given birth to twins. Unfortunately it seems that whilst having the second of the twins, the first had lost its Mother. When we put the Lamb back with the Ewe she rejected it. If I had been able to find the after birth there would have been a reasonable chance that the Ewe would have accepted the Lamb if I had wiped it over the Lamb. I could not find it. There was a little chance that if the Lamb had suckled the Ewe she may have let it feed from her. For most of the day I have been holding the Ewe and letting the lamb feed. Over the day the Ewe has kept pushing the Lamb away. I have bottle fed the Lamb and will carry on doing so, but I don’t know if it has had a colostrum from the Ewe. If the Lamb hasn’t, I don’t rate its chances of surviving very high. I don’t want to take the Lamb completely away from the other Sheep or we will finish up with a pet Sheep, and we don’t want that. The twins were a Ram Lamb and a Ewe Lamb. It is the Ram Lamb that has been rejected.
