First lambs on the farm

These are Icelandic sheep.  She's a real dedicated mum and has taken to both her lambs right away.

Chicken wanted to know what was going on.

and got told off by mum

They lamb out in the open, then spend  a few days in the mummy shelter (called a Jug), which is full of good things to eat and lots of lovely warm straw.

I love seeing the Icelandic sheep. I lived in Iceland a few years and it brought back memories. Thanks for sharing. We have a miniature farm with miniature horses.

The photo where the chicken is curious is very funny! You got the right moment on the photo.
