Meet Daisy.

Please excuse the goofy expression on my face. I was busy making silly, baby talk noises at Daisy.

Daisy is the newest arrival at the museum.  She was just three days old this past Saturday when I took these pictures and she’s a tiny little thing.

To give you an idea of just how little she is, here we have (from left to right) a full grown ewe, one of the lambs born back in February, and Daisy.

Yes, Daisy is actually closer in size to this pigeon than she is to any of the other sheep. 

And she’s still pretty wobbly too.  Just look at those knobby little knees.

Daisy’s mom is a first time mom and she’s a little unsure about the whole having a kid thing.  So unsure that she actually butts Daisy away every time she tries to nurse.  In order to get some milk in little Daisy, they’ve resorted to putting momma in a stanchion so Daisy can nurse a little bit.

That’s FarmerT holding momma by the horns so she can’t butt Daisy, and PioneerA making sure that Daisy is actually nursing and not getting stepped on.  To make sure Daisy is getting enough to eat, she’s also being bottle-fed goat’s milk.

Like most babies, she enjoys wearing her dinner as well as eating it.

Come see Daisy at Sheep to Shawl this coming Saturday.

Oooh, lovely. If I get to Sheep to Shawl, will I get to see her sweet little face in real life?

Yes, ma’am. Come see both of us! (Although she’s decidedly cuter than I am)
