Well it’s not everyday I go to meet and photograph someone and end up bottle feeding an orphaned lamb but that’s what happened when I met Rainy this week at her Little Lancashire Smallholding !
Rainy has a wonderful eclectic business that started out as cake making using the eggs from her own chickens. It was a business that allowed her to fit work around her children and be around when they were at home. Over the years the business has evolved into all things craft and smallholding related. Rainy keeps her own chickens, geese and sheep, she gives lessons in chicken keeping and even has chickens boarding with her whilst their owners go away ! She also makes beautiful chunky knitted and crochet items, personalised aluminium jewellery and keyrings and runs various craft based workshops, basically she is woman of many talents !
And just in case you wondered, this is Colonel, the orphaned lamb who is currently thriving !
