We have sheep
Each spring we buy in one or 2 ewes and some lambs and the start of our mini flock arrived last week. At the moment we have a ewe and 2 lambs and hope to get either another ewe or a couple more lambs in the near future. So please welcome, from left to right, Sheldon, Leonard and Mrs Wolowitz. Answers on a postcard as to why they are so named ...
I am also currently looking after a poorly lamb belonging to a friend. His mother refused to feed him so he is being bottle fed. Sadly he has an infection called joint ill so as well as 4 daily bottles of milk I am also injecting him with anitbiotics once a day. Fingers crossed he'll recover as he is the sweetest thing.

Sheep are rather prone to giving up on life easily so precautions are needed to keep them alive - my lot will be getting a worm dose and tick treatment tomorrow so wish me luck - they are notoriously difficult to catch!
I have to admit to finding sheep quite hard to look after but as we all love eating lamb and mutton I will persevere with them. Are you a sheep lover or do you prefer them on your plate?
