Milo & Mai 

Milo & Mai was born in May 2019. Mai is so like April and Milo is more like his daddy. They are the most loving funny gorgeous sheep you will ever meet. Their mum & dad is KK and Dave. There was also complications with them both and we had to take Milo home for a week and make him a strong boy as he was very weak, but we managed to help him and KK done the rest. They also needed help with feeding as KK was not letting them attach much. These 2 are so friendly and my god so cute.  They are so affectionate and so funny and very very greedy

Unfortunately KK the mother passed away when these babies was 5 months old, they did struggle for a few days but soon got back to their naughty selves and the other sheep are looking after them well.

Lambs arrive after a five month gestation period which is about 147 days. 

Only 5 minuets old.

Few days old

Few weeks old

Few months old

Baby sheep are called lambs. Lambs can walk just minutes after they are born, though they are often dependent on their mothers for the first four to six months of their lives. They are weaned around four to six month and become sexually mature around one and a half to five years, depending on species and gender.

At the time of birth, a lamb usually weighs five to eight pounds.

Increasingly, sheep and other farm livestock are being kept as pets or companions. They can make good pets because they are a gentle animal and respond well to human contact. Lambs make great projects for children. They are suitable for children with most disabilities.

Sheep have excellent memories for the faces of both other sheep and humans which they can remember for several years.

Pumpkins contain high levels of vitamins A and E as well as folate and fiber. Although they are mostly water (roughly 85 percent moisture content), they can make a reasonable supplemental protein source. Many livestock, such as horses, cattle, sheep and goats find them palatable. As you can see Milo loved the pumpkins this year (2020). His chops are orange.

At the one week mark lambs should have their tails docked. This isn't done for cosmetic purposes but to protect the lamb against fly strike or maggot infestation and for cleanliness.
