This little lamb is one of several babies born recently at Muscoot Farm. Some of them had to be only a few days old, with their shaky legs and baggy skin. This tiny one was old enough to stand steadily and look at us with the sweetest expression, which my daughter captured perfectly in the wonderful photo on which I based this painting. It’s fun to observe lambs and ewes for a while; you realize that the lambs and moms call to each other. The good mamas recognize their babies’ calls and stand up, tired as they may be, find their lambs, and feed them.
