Do not read on if you are at all sensitive.
I left the electrocuted lamb with Mum and his brother until the evening and then went with Carl to remove it at night time because I did not want to attract anything to the field. Mum was still next to it crying and as we took it away we thought - there is something we have to do here, Reg has no Mum and here is a Mum wanting a lamb back. We have not done this before but we decide to have a go at skinning the dead lamb and putting the skin on Reg. A bit of a long shot as Reg is a monster, white and three weeks old tomorrow but it seemed a waste not to try. Skinning went well but getting a little lamb coat on a big lamb was more of a challenge and we had to use a little bailer twine to keep it on. Reg didn't seem to mind. Mum was a little shocked her lamb had miraculously grown so much and she is a little suspicious - which I am not surprised about!
. . . and Sam is very happy as he bought himself a quad!
