It’s getting towards the end of lambing season on our farm (it feels like it’s been going on for ages), and N’s sheep have nearly all lambed.
He has 10 sheep, 6 have lambs, 3 are still to lamb and 1 was found not to be pregnant. So N’s a happy little boy.
His sheep and lambs are currently in the paddock behind our garden, so each morning he looks out of the window to check they’re ok. And on coming back from school, he’ll go out with his dad to feed them and count they’re all there.
This photo was taken one evening this week. I grabbed my phone to take a photo from the house, of N walking along with his sheep and lambs following behind.
I was reminded of the Pied Piper of Hamelin.
