"Life is mostly froth and bubble,
Two things stand like stone,
KINDNESS in another's trouble,
COURAGE in your own."

Our Newborn Damara Lambs
We have a bit of land nearby, to keep the grass down we have put a few sheep on it. We chose Damara Sheep these people have been extremely helpful. Damars and Dorpers are good for us as they do not need shearing.
The Black Headed F4 Dorper in the background had triplets the other day, she was ignoring one of the lambs so I took her to raise at home. She is keeping another lamb company. The little black one was one of twins to another sheep, her brother died and the mother abandoned her so she's being fed at home as well. They wear nappies when they are inside the house.
