Goodbye, Gloria & Norman

A while ago I made the decision to sell Gloria. I am currently raising her second lamb just as I raised the first - Tiddles last year, and now her daughter Penny. She didn't seem to have any interest in rearing lambs and I have no trouble gathering pet lambs to raise without Gloria's help. She was semi-bottle raised in 2014 alongside Dave.

Gloria was sold alongside some other ewes who'd either lost their lambs or didn't want them.

A few weeks later it was Norman's turn to go, alongside some other tips and a handful of the ewes left over from the first batch. Norman was a very successful tip for us but it was time for him to go. I don't like keeping tips for too long.

Being sold alongside Norman was Audrey's dad, who we bought last year.

It's always sad to see familiar faces go, but that's the nature of the business.
