Some are newborn some get sold

We got four lambs now, two male lambs and two female lambs. The first two are already quite strong. A tiny girl that was born today looks very tiny and the next days will show if she survives. Those lambs were born by two ewes, so we expect a lot more.

Better to give Ringelschwanz a name, just in case she dies. I bribed the mother with some sheepfood, so she let me take some photos. Own photo, licence: CC by/ Creative Commons Attribution

Gustav, Shaun and the two lambs that Berta had last year get sold today, so we can buy food for all of us. We’re completely broke and certain people try to find excuses not to pay us anymore.
