A Little Bit of Trivia
The fluffy lamb is a cute stuffed animal, which is a compliment to any child’s collection. Whilst lamb animals are usually seen on the farm, they can be seen at zoo’s, and on rural properties. Since lambs are not an option for the cities, children can substitute the real lamb for a stuffed toy.
What comes to mind when thinking about lamb animals is the nursery rhyme, Mary had a Little Lamb. A well known and loved rhyme by children. From toddler to young child, most know this rhyme. Lambs are depicted as soft, silky, white little baby animals that every child wants to cuddle and have follow them around. However not all are white, some are black.
Fluffy Lamb Toys
Cozy Lambs are always a hit with babys and toddlers as well as the Blankie as they bring comfort and security to them. They give babies something familiar to lay on or hang onto. I find these are also a great gift when a friend has a baby.
Stuffed fluffy lambs have the ability to stand on all four legs, or have a sitting position. They really are gorgeous stuffed toys.
A farm animal like the lamb, will help your child’s imagination to come into play whilst enjoying the comfort and feel of a cute, soft and adorable fluffy lamb.
Some Info on Rabbits
There are 914 breeds of sheep in the world. 40 or more different breeds are in the U.S.
A few of the more popular in the U.S. are: Columbia, Hampshire, Suffolk, and the Rambouillet
Generally lambs are born in spring. At times ewes give birth to one, two or three lambs, it is possible for them to have up to five.
Lambs are considered fully grown at about 6 months old. They will stay with their mother until they are 2 or 3 months old.
Some other breeds of sheep around the world are: Herdwick, Icelandic, Dorper and the Santa Ines.
They are ruminants, that is they chew the cud. Usually a new-born lamb can stand in its first hour after birth and starts nursing to receive its essential colostrum.
What They Eat When Born
Colostrum is the first milk produced during late pregnancy and just after birth. It is essential for a newborn, because it contains nutrients and antibodies to help them to get a healthy start in life. A newly born animal naturally has a very small stomach and underdeveloped digestive system. For these reasons, its first milk needs to be highly nutritious, contain less fat and be much richer than normal milk. It also needs to provide a much needed boost for its ability to ward off infection. The newborn needs this colostrum for its first few days of life.
Early in the lamb’s life it has its tail docked. This docking is the cutting short of the lamb’s tail. The practise of docking has been criticised by animal rights groups as not needed and cruel. Farmers, however, believe that docking solves a lot of health problems, such as fly strike, and cause only temporary pain.
Lambs, like their parents, follow a stronger leader. Hence we get the nursery rhyme “Mary had a little lamb”. Another saying derived from this is ‘Like lambs to the slaughter’, as they will follow their leader even into dangerous situations.
If you ever get the chance to see one of the fluffy lambs, you will see just how cute and georgous they really are. They can be seen in ‘animal farms’ that appear in some shopping centres.
