Trying to learn to live

I loved being a sheep keeper. The animals were friendly and trusting and seeing new lambs into the world always brought joy.

But of course, there were moments of sadness too. This little chap was (I think) rejected by his mother and found it hard to do anything. I turned to a vital book I had an NFU booklet on sheep and tried to find out how to help the little fellow.

When I put the book down he came over and looked as though he wanted to read it.


From memory, I don’t think this little lamb ever made it – a real moment of sadness but honestly, the joy brought by a success far outweighed the sense of failure if a lamb didn’t respond.

I think the photo would have been more amusing if I could report a success, but sadly that wasn’t the case. It’s still quite amusing though.
