Little lamb, who made thee?

6 Mar

I declared the arrival of spring and disappeared from the blog.  But I return to you with more evidence of green pastures and warmth to come.

Lambs.

A lambing barn in the Cotswolds.  In the front, moms and babes in ‘bonding’ areas where they can hang out together for several days without interference from other mothers or babies.  They learn each other’s scents and sounds and patterns, while still being surrounded by the larger group in which they will live.IMG_2310ed

This cocky fellow was about two days old.IMG_2351ed

This gorgeous bub about a day old.IMG_2317ed

And these two soft ones are newborns.  They were born about fifteen minutes before this photo was taken, and had not yet been moved to a bonding area.  Mama was still checking them out.IMG_2343ed

Lambikin was so tired he dozed off against a fence. Look at that face.

Lambs and an English country spring … it doesn’t get much better than this.

(Where did I find these lovely lambs? At Cotswold Farm Park.  Great day out with kids … or for adults who need lamb therapy.)

    Lamb therapy sounds like an excellent idea. 🙂

      Excellent! And not a drop of snow in sight … except for snowdrop flowers. 😀

    Oh my! How did you resist the urge to pick up and cuddle?

      The fencing kept me back. But (shhhhhh) I know a place where you can walk out into the fields and try your luck at a cuddle.

    I guess I need such a lamb therapy, too! They are so cuddly! Great pics!
