NEWBORN LAMBS THE DAY BEFORE LOCKDOWN

90E368A5-4347-48BE-B2DA-FC195DE73608

This photo was taken the day before we went  into lockdown.  It is a photo of day old lambs.  We had seen them the day beofore just after they were born, wobbling around trying to walk on their little legs.  We had gone back to see them (well I cannot see them but hubby describes them to me),

It was very strange because I had a horrible ominous feeling that we would never see those lambs again.  Yet I did not expect the complete lockdown that we have got.  But inside me I said goodbye to the lambs and cried tears of grief.

I love lanbs and the new life that they bring.  But now we cannot go to see them.  They will probably be almost full grown by now.  I dare not think of lamb chops lol.  Maybe next year things will be better and we will be able to go and see the lambs again. i hope you enjoy the picture.

  1. We have seen lambs in the field Lorraine, beautiful white balls of puff prancing and dancing in the sunshine. We also have several black lambs and it’s like watching a black and white silhouette movie. My uncle used to breed sheep and I remember the bad winter when so many of the young ones were stillborn and Mum’s rejected other babies. He tried everything to got those rejected babies accepted by the bereaved mothers, but many ended up being hand reared.

    I just find it odd Di, that I knew that day that we would not see those lambs again yet that day there didn’t seem to be any real indication that the lockdown was going to be so severe. It was like saying Goidbye to part of my life. Something that kept me going. We can’t go and see lambs now beacuse we are not allowed to drive out. I wonder what they look like now! Big, I should think!

  3. I had to spend the night during lambing in the barn with the pregnant ewes. It is a busy time for farmers and for the ewes but to see the lambs in the morning is delightful! I’m glad you were able to at least visit them once before the lock down.

  4. I see some lambs in the fields around here occasionally. Luckily, I don’t have to drive to see them, just when out walking with Ollie. I am sure the time will come when you can go to the lambs again, Lorraine.
    Best wishes, Pete. x
