Meet little Wednesday

John rang last week to say he had a brand new lamb and was on his way home!!!  Joy Joy it is far to early to have a lamb and after having 2 last year thought we might give it a break this year..... Can't you try and leave it with it's mother I said!! But no she had run off with the other twin and left this one for dead...Luckily we managed to get colostrum powder off the Gardeners and some milk powder to get us started.....when he got home we  had to warm her up and dry her as she was literally brand new still all wet from the birth...She drank the first lot of milk no problem and really hasn't looked back....quite something keeping her going when she had had no colostrum from her mother...she slept inside for 3 nights with her little jacket on and became rather fond of lying in front of the fire...but out side little lambie as she was capable of making a rather large puddle very often!!!
