Adopting little lambs

Marie, who is helping us out in the kitchen, is actually the sheep farmer of Pourchery. In a big barn, just around the corner, she keeps 300 sheep, of which 200 are pregnant at this moment! Since about three weeks, things have been very busy: each day six to ten little lambs are born. And there is something special this year; there are a lot of twins. Most of them with one classic white lamb and one brown, white-headed lamb. But sometimes it does not work out and the mother abandons the little ones or does not have enough milk.
