When Posy was just a couple of days old she discovered a tiny gap out of the lambing pen and she would leave her mum and brother Pip and go off on her own little adventures about the barn where she would encounter my own little girl Elsie who was 2 years old at the time and the pair of them developed a very special bond.. a sort of understanding of each other. As Posy grew this bond remained Posy would run up to Elsie in the field and lap up attention of any kind.. she would literally let Elsie do anything to her and thoroughly enjoy having her ears tugged at and even tollerate Elsie scrambling onto her back on her own accord. When Posy was born I had already made the descision to not keep any lambs that year..I had already found a home for all 6 of them and agreed for them to go.. Something that I deeply regretted the more I saw Posy and Elsie’s bond grow.. But as fate would have it Posy and Elsie (and Pip of course) were meant to stay together as that home didn’t work out. That whole experience was one of the things that helped push me towards finding a different way for the sheep to sustain themselves and so end up where we are today! Thank you Posy!
