Sadly, our dear beautiful Elle walked on this morning.
She was able to get under the doors in the lean to to nibble on the hay stored there and had managed to work loose some of the dreaded baling twine which she managed to catch around her neck. Will found her dead this morning with her sweet lamb Islay inconsolable by her side.
I hate baling twine. The door will be further blocked so this tragedy doesn't repeat itself, but we've lost a good friend and a wonderful breeding ewe. Elle came to us as a pregnant ewe from my friend Karen and she was the first ewe to lamb here. She gave us Gaia, Mousa, Faola, Inchgowan, and Islay. She was a wonderful mother.
We will treasure the lambs she gave us and miss her fiercely.
