5 Updated with more! Holy Cuteness, Lamb VIDEO!

Okay, so they're not frolicking, or having lamb field day, or even paying much attention to me.

these lambs (two sets of triplets and two singlets, plus mommas) just moved into the field (normally used for equipment/old stuff storage) next to our back garden (read: yard) so one of each set of triplets can be re-mommied to the singlets' moms.
Triplets are taxing on a mom, and so they're often "reassigned"- basically weaned onto a new mom.

*disclaimer: We don't have an actual video camera, and our little point and shoot died a while ago.  I shot this with Photobooth, so it was awkward holding my laptop on the stone wall.  Sorry.  Also, please kindly ignore my big nose poking in the corner in the middle; I was trying to make sure I was actually videoing the lambs and not the ground.

Bonus second video- take notice around 1:00, you'll get some lamb-skips!

Lastly (for today!), since I think he's even more adorable than lamb triplets,
this is what happened after I lifted Max up to see the lambs over the wall:
(he can't stand up on his hind legs to see because he's got a lot of joint issues- these also make his flail-dance hilarious)
Forgive our long grass, it grew like crazy over the past two weeks of rain.  Also, Max is digging at a mole-hole- he's actually a rather ineffective digger without assistance.
I do realize I sound like a lunatic here; but it's what keeps the sillies going!


  1. Awww, so cute, I love lambs! My sister is at university to train to be a vet and she's often been at farms during the lambing season... a few years ago I picked her up from one of them and I'd known lambs were cute before but oh em gee! They're so adorable... the jumping and skipping makes my heart melt!<3

  2. Very cute! I have no idea why but when I heard the lamb baaa I thought, "Wow that really sounds like a lamb!" I guess I was expecting, I don't know, something less lamby.

  3. I stumbled upon your blog and I'm excited to find another US blogger in Yorkshire! I also am semi-obsessed with the lambs and I the 'lamb skip'!

    Looking forward to reading more of your blog!

  4. Becky, HI!!! I just perused your blog a bit and I think you're not far from us at ALL! We need to explore this further- I just saw that you plan to visit Bolton Abbey in the future (on your Burnsall post) and we go there all the time. We have the membership, and the dogs love it. I can't wait to get to know you better!

  5. My cats went nuts when my computer started "baaaa-ing" LOL. Also - if the way you talk to your dog makes you sound like a lunatic, then we are lunatics together. Pretty sure my border collie (as smart as she is) thinks I am an idiot when I talk to her! :)


Thanks so much for stopping by! I can't wait to read your comment!
