- Birth is Mess Work
The brown spot to the right was where the white ewe lamb was born while I watched. Wow.
- The Interview Begins
This is the first time Caramel's ewe lamb is meeting her guardians.
- Bright Light!
It is darker in the jugs, so the ewe lamb adjusts her eyes to the bright, warm sunshine.
- Sniff Inspection
Chief llama, Kuzco, sniffs his newest ward.
- Urine Tests?
Even though the lamb urinated a few minutes earlier, she seemed compelled to do so for her guard llama. *shrug*
- Checking Out Other Lambs
The ewe lamb is looking at the other lambs who are a short distance away.
- Proud Guardians
Guinness and Kuzco stand behind Caramel and her ewe lamb. Caramel butted away anyone else who got near her ewe lamb except the llamas. All the sheep seem to trust the llamas completely with their babies.
- Mother & Daughter
Caramel and her 2-day-old ewe lamb.
- Bait Hay
I put a flake of hay near the fence line to draw the animals to a spot where they would be on camera.
- Aretha's White Ewe Lamb
Basks in the warm sunshine.
- What's That?
The ewe lamb is already watching everything her mother does.
Aretha's ewe lambs cuddle together as another lamb (ram lamb maybe?) investigates a pine cone--a favourite toy in the paddock for lambs.
Caramel's ewe lamb investigates the hay falling from her mother's mouth.
- Stay Back
Caramel lets me know that distance is requested.
- Play Date
The adults are Zinnia and Nina. Two of the black lambs are theirs. The other black one and the white one are Aretha's, and she is not in sight at the time.
