Goodbye Little Lamb

Today little Miss Lamb died, sometime before I arrived to feed them this morning.



She passed peacefully, laying next to her twin.  The bedding around her was not disturbed.  I believe she died in her sleep.

She is not going to be the last of our livestock that will move on to 'greener pastures' either through death from illness, slaughter  or other reasons.  It is only to be expected in farming.  What upsets me is the circumstances for this senseless death.  I remain frustrated about how she was wounded & ultimately died - it was truly a waste - in so many ways.
