So nice to see such well cared for farm animals! Even the herd dog's coat is gorgeous! xo


Just read this morning a lovely passage in "Far From the Madding Crowd" on Gabriel Oak and the lambing season:

"He returned to the hut, bringing in his arms a new-born lamb, consisting of four legs large enough for a full-grown sheep, united by a seemingly inconsiderable membrane
about half the substance of the legs collectively, which constituted the animal's entire body just at present.

The little speck of life he placed on a wisp of hay before the small stove, where a can of milk was simmering..."

I love that description: "little speck of life."


...and I love you, my own sweet little lamb! xoxo
