These two lambs from Newell were the highlight of the petting zoo. At less than a month old, their playfulness and general cuteness drew large crowds of excited young children and their smitten parents. 

They're called bum lambs because, for one reason or another, their mothers were unable to take care of them. These two little orphans are bottle fed by their human parent, Colleen McTaggert, and her children.

Although they look like it, these two are not twins, but they are very close and spend lots of time playing together. Being fed by humans will make them very tame and friendly as they grow up.
