As promised, here are a couple of photos of our latest addition to the flock (and the last for this year!), Sooty :-)

And one with his loving mama...


  1. How cute is that!! Tiny, wee little thing. I would love to be around baby sheep again - it has been a long time.

    I had calves a couple of decades ago when I was hand milking my tiny herd of two Jerseys, one Guernsey and two Frieisans plus assorted calves. I am fond of farm animals and live now on a quarter acre block, sob!!

  2. My HunterGatherer used to milk two Jersey cows, too, and he speaks very fondly of them. Fences here at the Sparrowholding aren't strong enough for cattle - in fact, they're not always strong enough for sheep! These blasted lambs may be cute, but they are continuously doing circuits of our garden, with me coursing behind them shouting unmentionable things! They are very quick to find the holes in the fence in an exit direction - but not so quick when it comes to finding their way back in :-(.
