Bottle Feeding Baby Lambs at Sheep World in New Zealand

I’ll admit it, I am a sucker for adorable, newborn baby lambs. Sheep World, located about an hour north of Auckland happen to have several when we visited. They were amongst several adorable animals they had on the property.

The highlight of the visit is the sheep demonstration. Using the dogs to round up the herd, the animals are brought in, drafted (sorted) and then there is sheering demonstration. It’s interesting, educational, and fun. It ends with the babies, the adorable lambs running in to drink from the bottles, that have been distributed amongst the visitors – mostly younger children.

      They were all so cute, but I agree – I wouldn’t trust them either – but I didn’t want to take away any of my nieces fun. As for your guess, sorry not the bunnies.

      It wasn’t the emu. It might have been, but she is a quick learner and by this point already knew to keep a bit of cautious distance.

    I’m guessing the emu.
    Your niece is really pretty and I can very much see the family resemblance. She’s a lot like you and Melissa

      Sorry, it’s not the emu. I can see the resemblance more in the photos. There are a few more of us in the family. No question we are all related when we are together.

    Those lamb are adorable, I couldn’t picture myself that they could bite, I think they just want to eat. Although I admit it, sometimes the cutest animals are the most aggressive, just like the swans, they are beautiful and elegant but very unfriendly and aggressive, they protect their territory really hard. Once I have been bit by one, although I only wanted to stroke her.
