It’s lamb season in the Cape

Lamb drinking milkshake
Our nieces (who live on a farm) excitedly informed us that it's lamb season in Langebaan, where they live. Lamb season invariably leads to one or two abandoned lambs - which, as you can imagine makes said nieces extremely happy. Not because their mothers abandoned them, but because they get to take care of the little ones.

This photo is of Kerry-Anne (also really excited to be playing with lambs) feeding one of the babies a strawberry milkshake. Nice hey?

For what it's worth, it wasn't actually a strawberry milkshake, it's a special formula that the farmer provides to feed the abandoned lambs.

    It is Helen, @kerry_anne already asked for one, with big droopy brown eyes. I said no. Actually, I said “NO! No way!” ;)

    Jonathan, you can have one. I can organise it. But you’ll have to come back to CT first. Ok?

    They are so cute Paul. We had an orphaned calf on the farm long ago and also fed it with a special mixture. Your aunt and I had great fun with that as well. It also used to suck our fingers!
