She wrote: "At the start of lambing time you get your troubles. This lamb was a little sharp, before it's time and mother is sick," adding: "She might get her back, depends on whether she can feed her. The real likelihood is that she'll be adopted onto another yow if she gets strong. Hope springs eternal."
