However, life has to go on.
People who have been reading this blog for a while will remember this picture of my pet lambs, Mabel and Lucy, sheltering from a summer shower in the chicken house:
Well, now I'm bottle feeding Lucy's latest triplet (she could only cope with twins)
But that's not the only one
There are so many that George thought I might need a hand
They always make me think of piranha fish they way they swarm around trying to get milk from anywhere:
And at four times a day this makes for quite a lot of work. However, once they get used to the bottle, and three of them are already, I can feed them from a rack that makes life much easier.
Meanwhile, they are nice and snug in their little house, safe from the cold wind and any hungry foxes.
