Another new addition to the croft...

Introducing daughter of Daisy.  Daisy was a cross-cheviot who came to us via friends in Bunavonneader.  She had been abandoned by her mum and when her adopted mum moved to the mainland, we welcomed Daisy into our flock.  Last year Daisy was the last to lamb and sadly her lamb died at a couple of months old from an infected tick bite. This year she is the third to lamb and her daughter looks to be almost completely cheviot. 


Daisy looks to be caring for her lamb very well.  The picture above shows the lamb at about 5 minutes old.  What a wee cutie!!
