More Cute Lamb Photos

This is our son's rejected triplet. After bottle feeding him for several days, we found a new home for him. Cindy is a foster mom who sees benefits from having animals around for her kids to enjoy.

The lamb was becoming very friendly, as bottle lambs do. He'd follow our son around everywhere, if allowed. Remember "Mary had a little lamb?" Well, Mary's little lamb was probably bottle-fed...

Son had mixed feelings about selling the lamb. He was so cute! But lots of work... (especially since blog reader Pam suggested that he do the 2:00 a.m. feeding!). And the money sounded good. But he was so cute!

Such is the life of a farm kid. You learn to appreciate the good times and accept the less-than-good times.


  1. Enjoyed this post with the photos of the bottle fed lamb. Hoping he thrives in his new home, it will be a good experience for the foster family, also.

    Your rug on the home schooling etsy site is beautiful, love the colors you have used and the doubled warp. Haven't seen that method used before, and will put it on the list of things to try.

  2. OHHHHHHH!!!! the lamb was so cute, I'm sure his new family will take extra care of him. I too love the rag rug, I have a lot of bed linens that could use a new life, something else on the to-do list.

  3. That picture of the lamb following your son is sooo cute! Yes, we are learning that farm life is hard, both physically and emotionally. I've been so proud of the kids for adapting so easily. And I'm so thankful that we get to experience it, both the ups and downs.

  4. Awwww, that lamb is so cute!!! I hope he thrives in his new home!

  5. Well, and there is also the cost of the milk replacer to consider (said from one farmer to another - grin!)

    I had those brief moments of pangs about our bottle lambs leaving, too. But only brief ones ;)

    I hope your son is feeling okay about it, too. Its nice that there was a good home for the lamb to go. I know our sheep have been a saving grace for our foster son...
