This one is for all of you but especially for my favourite Hostel Boy as he hasn't seen this yet. 

Lolly our favourite sheep has had a lollypop.  We have been watching Lolly with an element of excitement and trepidation.  Anyway late on the 12th March, sometime before midnight, the lollypop was born.  Everything went smoothly, no malpresentations or looping of the cord around the neck and there she was.  The only problem was with a very persistent fox which I ended up chasing off three times before it gave up.  I never thought that I would use the infrared light on my headlamp, but that night it was very handy.  And I got to see the sun came up before I fell asleep in my bed roll in the middle of the paddock.

I just adore baby lambs. I helped save several orphans when I was a kid. We would feed them all through the night, and all day to get them through.
I wish Lollypop a happy life!
