Adoption

by Sadhya Rippon April. 17, 2012 3886 views

A lamb died at birth.
A ewe died whilst giving birth to a live lamb.
The farmer took the skin off the dead lamb and wrapped it round the orphaned lamb so that the bereaved mother thought it was her own lamb. It smelled like hers. Now they are bonded.
A happy outcome to two tragic stories.

Wonderful ... I have witnessed this too ... also in Wales!
My daughters loved to spend time on the local farms and i'm sure this gave them
a great love for animals.
My parents lived in Powys.
Thanks for beautiful images of a touching situation.
