I had the rare opportunity to spend an hour in the lamb pasture the other day and was overwhelmed with how affectionate our lamb crop is this year.
Primrose (her head is in my hands) gets jealous if I am petting someone else and neglecting her. She will butt the lamb I'm petting until I give her at least a one handed scratch.
Myrtle gives me kisses, and then burps fermented grass fumes into my face. Isn't that just the sweetest thing?
I think Primrose is in a trance.
Hyacinth (the yuglet with the black eye) has been the most friendly of our lambs, she came over for her share of attention.
Myrtle decided to take a load off and hunkered down right next to me, there she sat until I got up to leave.
FYI - we still have lambs for sale including a few of these very friendly girls - how can you resist???
