Laurel the Lamb


Introducing...Laurel the Lamb

You may remember our plea last month to help us find a better name for our lamb than our not very original Lambie. Well, not only did Janet McDowell from Co Down suggest the name Laurel, she also sent us in a poem to dedicate to the wee one. Over to Janet...


There once was a lamb with no name,
Who after some weeks thought this lame.
So she tweeted her plight,
By computer one night,
And awaited the results of the game.

Then in came the names she'd expected,
With humour and wit interjected.
But Lambchop and Mint Sauce,
Really got her quite cross,
And she wished she'd never connected. (to the Internet)

But after some thought she decided,
That by her wee heart she'd be guided.
She would choose one that hinted,
Where her first steps were 'minted' (excuse the pun)
And where Laurel-Lamb now is resided!



 Put like that, it's obvious really, isn't it? Thanks Janet, and Laurel baa-ed what sounded suspiciously like a sigh of relief when we told her!
