Yesterday was weaning day. All but 10 of the youngest lambs were separated from their mother's. There was lots of loud bleating. Nobody was happyin either pen.Lad and Drift kept everything under control.And when some desperate mother's broke out to try and return to their babies at the barn, Laddie gently but firmly put them back.We put some cozy straw in the lean-to of the barn and it seemed to take the edge off the loss for the lambs as they started to play in it.But the best balm seemed to be food. You can't keep crying if your mouth is full.
