Remember back when we had a sick little lamb come to us? A farmer found her being left behind by her Mum, who had already dropped twins the day before. She was emaciated, couldn’t stand, and it was doubtful she would live. He put her in my arms and asked “please do something.. if I leave her out there she will die for sure”. On the spot we named her ‘Cookie’, because that’s what she was going to be, a tough little cookie if she was to survive. Here she is at a few days old…..
Cherry was an orphan lamb too. Her problem was her eyes. Her bottom eyelids would curl inward scratching and scraping her eyes, causing them to weep and be sore.
