Sunrise & chores

The sun comes up, the does need milked, the kids need bottled, hay needs to be tossed.
Every morning, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. The life of a dairy farmer.

This is Tiny Bit. My little sister rescued her about a week and a half ago from the local sale (she was sold for $7.50!). She is the sweetest little lamb ever. She was born deformed - her front legs are pretty messed up and one side of her face and ear is smaller than the other (you can see in the photo). I think it was caused by her mother having a deficiency of some sorts - probably selenium. But, she is living a spoiled life here like no other lamb :).

Hi Suriyah. I nominated you for a Leibster Award. If you go to my blog, you can see what to do. If you don't want to, that's fine. I just love your blog and you are a great help to me. Thanks!

This comment has nothing to do with our pose, but I don't know of another way to ask you. I just noticed that one of 9-week-old Toggs (they have been de-budded)is bleeding just a bit around the site of where the horn should be. She playing/eating/acting normal. Should I be concerned?

Nope, don't be concerned unless she starts acting "off". It is normal for the kids to knock their horn buds and they will bleed a little.

What a relief! Thanks! :)
