This lamb Is less than 24 hours old. Her mother is the Dorset sheep we borrowed from a farmer neighbor (John) to keep our sole sheep company. It was a lovely surprise to find the lamb in our pasture yesterday late afternoon. If you look carefully, you can see its drying umbilical cord. John told me how to hold the lamb close to the ground, where mom could smell it, and walk backwards, leading mom to the smaller pasture by the barn. What a joy to hold this baby. By nighttime, the lamb was curled up in the straw of the barn. (I know the photo isn't very sharp.)
