Life Goes On

This has been a very difficult week for East Garston, with the funerals of three wonderful local characters who will truly be missed.

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.


  1. Looks like hard work but they are entertaining.

  2. What a lot of work. I get to do it once in a while and its lovely but ..... four times a day!!!
