firstly these lambs are happy .. !!
secondly i wanted to show ppl who have been following the lamb story the difference in size between the quadruplets and a 'normal' sized lamb ..
the one on the right is one of the quads and the one on the left is normal size .. they were born on the same day .. also the scrawniness of the little quad is more obvious with the comparison ..
the quads are all bottle fed because the mother had no milk .. hopefully they will survive ..
we were transporting them on the trailer to a safer paddock because there have been a lot of foxes around .. they will kill young lambs ..
they are four days old now ..
they're lucky my brother only has 11 sheep .. if he had hundreds the lambs wouldnt have such loving attention ..
used ghostbones texture in flickr

this was taken shortly after they were born .. she'd only had twins at this stage and had two more lambs soon after ..

Of course those lambs are happy! Look at the one on the left -- he's laughing!! Nice work with the texture and processing. Neither one hits you over the head.
