Darkie's Twins

This is Darkie the sheep.

She's halter trained and has had two sets of lambs - a single and twins.  - and they have alway's been pure white. This year, Dakie identical had twins, Rita (right) and Roy. They were identical in every way.

They both had to be helped into the world by my Dad at 8:30pm on a Monday in February, with school the next day. Dakie was a watchful mum.

Yesterday I saw all three together again...

...And noticed something - Roy's tiny! Here he is with Rita (large lamb on the left). He's so much smaller than Rita I thought it wasn't him, but the letters 'DK' on his side proved me wrong.

Not so identical, then.
