or more correctly Who is Alba…..
Alba ia a lamb, born around the 14th of march 2012 and much needed by both myself and my old ex flock sheep (Breagh) as my eldest sheep is very tame and sweet but also very old and well….. realistically….
I will need a tame one when the dark day comes to say good-bye to Wish (known as The Right Honorable Lady Wishtiria-Ithink-Youwill-Find-Thantmine) She is lovely old lady born in december 1999 and she also now has arthritis.
Anyway the old girl loves Alba and Breagh… well she wants her a bit bigger as she thinks she might get lumbered with a suckling lamb….. having seen what Alba and the other lambs I have had do to the bottle teat I am not surprised!
I have had a very bad time lately and needed some distraction, Alba has given me both that and a reason to keep fighting back against this bone shift which can be really bad at times and is and has been kicking me about for some time now.
I will learn how to do pic’s so she can be seen…….
She was just on a week old. She came off her mum as the mum’s milk had dried up and she was big and very strong so he felt that was the one to remove….. Being a bit of a pig is also something she is good at, lol.
From the back of Lanark in Scotland she and I stayed at a friends for a week… her in the shed me not in the shed, lol. She had a long drive ahead of her….
Alba’s game of Chase Me
Oh she loves chase me it seems…… My friends grandchildren came to meet her, she loved them actually and when they ran she ran with them. All the baaas she did her best to run to and loved it. The exercise was almost certainly good for her and she sprinked about the place like a demented demon.
She plays it here but I am too slow and boring so the collie cross springer is her chase me friend…. my lab is scared of her, lol.
My friends lab wasn’t, she also played chase me and put up with being butted in the stomach…
Sadly time flies when you’re having fun and we had to come home.
The Journey Home
We went via the borders and stopped to see some more friends of mine. They also had grandchildren and Alba played chase me again…. lol She loves it so much you can’t stop her, nor would I want to.
We stopped every 2 hours to feed her and caused a bit of a stir in more than one service place with a bottle and a lamb…..
Stopped at some more friends and they played chase me as well…. she now thinks everyone will….She stayed in the utility room there and then on to some more friends who had had the dogs for me.
At last we reached Cornwall and home but she is one traveled lamb.
