It was a squally day when Flora gave birth to her first lamb, Lily lamb. A few minutes later Daisy lamb was born and just as they were getting up for their first drink a perfect double rainbow formed above them, amazing! Lily lamb was bigger than her sister and she was full of confidence from day one.
Lily lamb led the way and did everything first with daisy right behind. She watched her mother get a wool rub and let her human give her one within the first week. She was the first to jump a hay bale and venture off without her mother. Daisy was hot on heels though and together they formed the happiest two lamb gang you could imagine.
Lily was extremely playful so her human put a hay bale out for her. She tuned it into a playground immediately and got hours of enjoyment out of it by playing king of the castle with Daisy. Lily won most of the time because of her size but Daisy never stopped trying. After winning Lily would zoom off at full speed with Daisy in pursuit.
Lily lamb’s extreme confidence initially mean’t she was the main instigator of making trouble. If Beans was resting peacefully on his hill, Beans hill, she would annoy him until he got fed up and forcefully moved her on with a big shove. She would then run back and occupy Beans hill until he came back looking very cross. It didn’t take long for Daisy lamb to join in so poor Beans had two rascals to contend with.
Lily grew very quickly and had a slight speed advantage when it came to the zoomies. Zoomies involves running as fast as you can back and forth across the paddock with high speed hopping and radical last minute direction changes. It wasn’t long before Lily’s size and strength mean’t she would almost knock Flora over if she wasn’t getting enough milk. Poor Flora put up with it most of the time but sometimes it was too much and she would run off with Lily lamb in pursuit.
When Lily shed her wool for the first time she left a long strip on her back. It didn't shed like it should have so Lily formed a wool mohawk on her back. It might even be permanent because it came back in 2021. If its still there in 2022 then it could be permanent and she will need a trim once a year. Lily lamb turned 1 in September 2021 and she is almost as big as her mother now but she’s still a lamb to her human.
