Lulu and Lottie

This is a picture of Lulu and Lottie taken when we went to visit them with their Mum Cilla, a few weeks ago. Then they were three weeks old.

Now they are big girls of eight weeks old, and this is them this morning.

Already friendly, they came running over when they saw me. They let me stroke them and tickle them behind their ears. They watched in amazement while I filled the trough with water from the hose and tried to drink the water while it was still frothy with bubbles.

The food trough is tipped on its side at the moment as they are too small to comfortably eat out of it, but doing it this way they get used to eating at it, and as a bonus it will be a good way for us to see how much they have grown later on.

They are settling in well, but already we have more animal visitors on the farm......they are living in the paddock, I will try to get a good photo for tomorrows post. (They are very beautiful!!)

Sorry but I have added word verification to try and curtail the unprecedented amount of spammers recently posting comments. I will try this rather than stop Anonymous Users commenting for the time being to see if this will solve the problem. Thank you for your patience.
