Meet Kilo...

We had a lamb born at the farm this week who was about 800g when he was born. We didn't think he'd make it as he was so small but I tubed some colostrum into him, stuck him under a heat lamp and he got stronger...
He came into the Farm Office with us as we sat and did our Nutrition assignments about silage *yawn* and he's got through the worst and going to make it.
Next to a 500ml bottle so you can see how small he is...

I took him back to our student flat to bottle feed him throughout the day and he's had so many visitors already.



Of course I couldn't leave him behind so I bought him and now officially own a sheep...
He'll stay with us for a few weeks and then eventually he's going to live on a friends smallholding near home so I'll be able to visit!
