Brothers take rescued lambs to Delaware fair

(Continued)

The lambs needed immediate attention.

“The lambs came home that afternoon, in the back of the car,” said Maxwell.

The boys began bottle-feeding the lambs. Maxwell named his sheep Josephina, and Benjamin named his Kate.

During the months before the fair, Kate’s frostbitten ear was trimmed off, and the raw edge healed. Nice white wool grew over Josephina’s burned side.

“We love watching the boys take care of the animals,” said their father, Phillip. “The lambs even got so they knew when the boys were coming home from school.”

“The lambs ate the mail, too,” said Jamie.
