One of the most enjoyable jobs of this sit is feeding the lambs. It’s quite heart warming to watch them enthusiastically guzzling at their bottles as their tails wag furiously.  They are surprisingly strong so I always make sure I have a firm hold on the bottles.  Each feed seems to be over in a matter of minutes leaving both lambs with bulging bellies and milk foam mouths!

 I  make up the lamb’s milk from a powder formula which reminds me of packet custard. To this I add  enough warm water to feed two very hungry lambs. Feeds take place three times a day and I am always met with an ecstatic welcome!
