Two Shakes of a Lamb’s Tail
Two Shakes of a Lamb’s Tail is the funny, illuminating diary of a year in the life of a New Zealand farm vet
With a husband and two children, 1200 sheep and 400 cattle, farm dogs and pet lambs, pigs bent on excavation and a goat bent on escape, country life is never dull. From calving cows to constipated dogs, weddings to weaning lambs, daffodils to ducklings to droughts, each season brings new challenges and delights. Sometimes it’s exhausting but it’s almost always a lot of fun – anyway, it’s all part and parcel of the life of a Kiwi mother, farmer’s wife and vet.
