Ruby - Our Little Miracle

For those of you who are interested in my little farm stories....

It's been a tough day on the farm today...we unfortunately had to put down 2 pregnant sheep because they were very very sick (hard to understand and accept, I know, but it was the kindest thing to do)...and we were able to save one of the unborn lambs.

She's tucked up inside tonight - away from the terrible wind and rain.  She's just had her 1st feed of colostrum and is now able to stand for a little while before falling over.  She's a true miracle, our Ruby.  Unfortunately her twin didn't make it but she will have Maggie to keep her company now.  Let's hope they like each other!
This photo was captured mid-baa!
I have a little video of her taking her very first steps and standing for more than 5 secs and falling over and baa'ing but it won't load here for some reason - grr.


  1. Oh that is sad news Tania. Ruby looks like a strong little trooper. Thanks for sharing her with us :-).

  2. Oh little Ruby is so cute. Such a sad story though. Can you keep her as a pet? Instead of sending her out into the paddock with all the other sheep? She looks like she needs to stay with you and Charlotte.

  3. Adorable! Goodness you will have your hands full with 2 new babies, love seeing these little fluff balls!

  4. Gosh Tania you've got hard decisions to make!

    She is very cute and I hope she grows up big and strong.

  5. Awwww... She is so cute & adorable. My father in law works on a farm on the outskirts of Launceston & my wife & I love visiting when all the new lambs & calves are about


Really love reading your comments - thanks for taking the time! Tania
