Lambs in Sweaters?!

Finn lambs with sweaters

“To my mind, the life of a lamb is no less precious than that of a human being.”
― Mahatma Gandhi

This post is not even remotely garden or wildlife related, but I couldn’t resist sharing these photos.  A friend of mine, who happens to raise sheep and shears (including my 3 dumplings), was out shearing a flock of Finn sheep a couple of weeks ago.  Lambing season for many up here begins in February/March, but others time it for slightly warmer temps in April.  The “mother” of this flock, just to make certain the lambs remained warm and toasty, knitted beautiful, little sweaters for each.

It has to be one of the most adorable things I’ve seen, and my friend was obviously smitten.
