    We've got a couple other lambs in the barn, but it's much darker in there and my pictures of them aren't great. This one, however, was rejected by his mother and we have been bottle feeding him. He also doesn't have a mother to keep him warm out there so he has been staying in a dog crate in the house.

    My girlfriend was annoyed I was taking pictures of her, and this is one of the few where she doesn't have her head turned.

    And here's one from my phone when we were warming him up after having him out in the barn with the rest of the flock

    Seems to me like the orphan came out ahead in the end... comfy chair, warm fire, attractive babylamb-sitter....

    I know eh? We tried to get him and his mother to bond, but he was at least as uninterested as she was! He's smarter than he looks I guess because he will be a tough one to eat. Maybe we can find someone who wants a pet lawnmower!

    Domesticated ewes and wethers (castrated rams) are pretty docile, which one reason why sheepdogs are required.

    Uncastrated rams, on the other hand, are gross and should probably stay in the field at all times.
