Spring in little bones
I am not exactly working on art these days. I am earning a bit by working as a farmhand in N-Iceland. This time of year it is all about lambing. Lambs getting born in various states. Most of them are healthy and going happy like the one in this little video that is my contribution to you all. Some are weak and tired of being thrown out into the big world that they are not quite full of instinct and having problems finding their maaams udders. But they learn as time goes. Others are triplets and then one of them has to be weaned under a ewe that only has one lamb. Sometimes they are happy taking the second strange lamb mostly they are not keen on the strange one and it takes patience from man and ewe to make it happen. Takes 4-5 days.
But do enjoy this little happy lamb that has got spring in it's little legs.
