lambs at dusk

For a little more light-hearted fare... The video is a bit dark because the sun had just set, but you can still get a general idea of the lamb-shenanigans.

They have morphed into a proper gang now, old enough to explore with each other instead of next to their mothers, but young enough to return to mom every few minutes for a little topping up. It drives the ewes a bit nuts when they are trying to locate their lambs by calling to them, and the babies completely ignore them.

All moms can relate to the frustration of selective hearing in your offspring. It may even be more bearable to know that other species suffer from it as well.

  1. Love the lambie gangs! Ours are just starting to become a cohesive gang group. Love it when they ignore their moms!
