Meet Oliver

I promised to tell you about Oliver. Oliver is a rather special lamb. He is an orphan and just like his namesake he is always bleating for more. Even though he is bottle fed, he chases the ewes around and tries to sneak a drink from other lambs' mothers. 

Oliver came over to watch the shearing. When one of the ewes was sat up to be sheared he saw her bulging udder and two pink teats waving at him. Oliver could not resist. He latched on and helped himself. 

Shearing had to wait while Oliver filled his belly. Fortunately, the ewe didn't seem to mind.


  1. Oliver sounds fantastic! My cat Eric is a bit of an opportunist when it comes to food too. As a result he is now a bit "chunky" and has recently been put on a special diet!

  2. Oh, I like Oliver! He knows where to get the good stuff. Happy weekend!

  3. Oh I love this!!! What a cutie :-).
