Two new arrivals in one week... This is Herbie.

Herbie is a six month old ram. When he was born his mother accidentally trampled him. As a result he's arrived with us with very bad back legs which make him stagger when he walks, a bit like Douglas Bader. Should have called him Douglas really, but we've already got a Douglas (another ram)! A trip to the vet has confirmed that he has torn ligaments in both knees. Sue is injecting him regularly with an anti inflamitory and we're trying to keep him quiet, but he's getting about and joining in very well despite his problems. We're just hoping he improves as he grows up. We'll do all we can, of course and he's being spoiled rotten.
