Sunday Surprise

Yesterday, while I was sorting through a mountain of paperwork, Kim’s car pulled up unexpectedly. Out she hopped with two baby lambs, only two days old!

Outfitted in their “house wear” uniforms, they showed up for their Sunday visit in diapers and onesies that Kim had picked up at the Goodwill for 25 cents.

Their little sweet baaaaaaaa voices are so ADORABLE! Kim said they slept with her on the couch their first night in her home. They came from a neighbor who called Kim with the sad news that their mother had died in childbirth. Her neighbor is in the middle of calving and doesn’t have time to bottle feed them. That’s why Kim showed up out here. Our “cow” girls are still giving us milk on a daily basis and could I spare an extra gallon or two? Could I?! Of course! But only if she promises to bring them to work every day this week.

Below, little “not-named-yet” explores my belt collection. Any name ideas for these two little guys????? More photos coming this week, I’m sure.

    Oh my, they are so adorable in their new spotted coats and onesies!! What a wonderful new addition to the staff, albeit, a total distraction of cuteness!!

    Oh, I’m slain! <3 What breed are they? Such darlings. I ended up as Chief in a March mission of saving lambs that were born WAY too early in this part of the world. Bucks got out, elderly owners were unable to do anything about it until the damage had been done. Many were lost, but I saved about 50. Fifteen remained *mine*. I gave the rest to a girlfriend to raise. I had more fun with my lambies. A lot of work too since it was still winter here. I had a rubbermaid nursery in our house for a week, by then we had converted one end of the chicken house for them and put up heat lamps. One thing to look for is bloat — bums are prone to it. Maybe they won't have a problem with it since they're getting real milk. I had only milk replacer. Won't this week be fun with your wee lassies in the office 🙂
    Names?? Are they both ewes or bucks or one of each? Margaret & Minerva. Hopalong & Cassidy (I love they way lambs play… run and hop sideways!). George & Gracie. Dolly & Loretta (country songbirds). Dotty & Notty – one has dots, they other not 🙂

    Names? How about Cuddles & Nosey? I think you’ll know which name to give to which kid.

  4. Laurie says:

    How about names from an old Arkansas radio show? Ray and Ram.

    How about Sweety and Honey for these two adorable little lambie pies! Just want to cuddle with them!

    Ador and Able !!

    When I was a little kid, my gramma had a bum lamb in the house. She called him Bucky and bottle fed him. I will never forget the sound of his little hooves racing up and down the hallway. He was quite the character.

    Names? Ewe-nice and B-ewe-lah. (Eunice, Beulah)

    Tis the season for bottle lambs! How about Teeny and Tiny. That works for rams or ewes.
