A Lucky Lamb
Out in the fields, early morning, checking for new lambs.
Find a sheep that has just lambed but no lamb in sight, after taking a good look around and still not finding anything it's time to get on and put the missing lamb down to a Fox, but the sheep knows better!
Mum (no longer Sheep) pesters and leads to a Rabbit hole, set in one of those 'Horseshoe' shaped things, I'd say 'bunkers' you get on steep fields
All that could be seen was a little nose and two eyes deep down the hole, the 'mum' had used the shelter of the land and when the lamb had touched down on Earth it's back legs had gone straight down the hole, the more it wriggled the deeper it got!
'Trog' is now doing very well as can be seen, (little black face in the middle of the photo)
