. . . and then there were three


Imagine our surprise when we arrived at the farm on Sunday to find three lovely lambs in the pen!
The owners have named them: Emily is the first, brown-faced little lamb; the white lamb we were calling Chloe has been named, 'Rosie'; and the newest little lambie is called Izzy.
Izzy was only four days old on Sunday. You can see remnants of her umbilical cord in some of the photos. Her mom had triplets and there wasn't enough milk for all three siblings, so she still gets to be one of three in her new home in the pen.
Enjoy the pictures - and a big welcome to Izzy!

Oh Maggie I love all these posts with the little lambs! I wish I could come feed them too. Funny while you were spending time with them I was busy making a Little Bo Peep pincushion!

Those are so sweet :) We used to have a pygmy goat. She was mean, but we loved her.
