    Well I havent posted for a while, so here is HEAPS and HEAPS of pics to make up for that lol

    Firstly, the bottle babies. We currently have 6 lambs and 2 kids on the bottle. I am sure that more lambs will arrive - lamb season goes from May till November (I get all the orphans from the neighbours). I will also likely get 2 more boer kids in the next week or so, and I'm looking to get between 4 and 10 angoraxboer kids on the bottle in the next week or so. Its definitely a chore to feed this many - I dont like using lamb bars I like bottles, I know exactly how much each animal gets, so there are a HEAP of bottles and lots of teats and LOTS of formula! 9L of milk per day so far ... thats 2 gallons and 3 pints. *Gasp* and that will increase!

    Dreamchaser ... Minty is a Damara sheep. I think of her as a girl, but she's also a boy lol

    liz ... lets hope so

    nhsmallfarmer ... I can tell all the lambs apart by their faces ... lol it drives everyone else nuts even mum who feeds them regularly, because she cant tell who is who. I had to put different coloured collars on them for mum

    Name suggestions for the black and white ewe lamb, anyone?
