Skittish Lambs!

The Wild Rose Farm lambs aren't tame lambs. Occasionally we'll have a lamb that's been bottle fed ...... they are the only ones that come up to people. Sometimes an older ewe will learn to eat animal crackers or other treats out of hand. Otherwise, they behave like sheep typically do and run from any perceived threat! The lambs above are torn between coming in to their feed and fleeing from someone in the barn taking pictures of them. They've dashed in and out several times already.

This is rambouillet ewe lamb #405. She was standing up on her back legs in a post on January 10th when she got her new flock ear tag. She's also trying to decide if it's safe to come into the barn!
