Really Larkin should not have been born as the farmer with the flock of ewes he came from had decided that he was too old to do another lambing but he went away for a holiday and the person looking after the holding in his absence found a lonely sheep all by itself and turned it out with the flock – it just happened to be the ram!! Sadly Larkin’s mother died giving birth to him but a friendly neighbour said she would rear the orphan and she was brave enough to part with him once he was no longer dependant on her so that he could be amongst his own kind again; she loved him dearly and parting was a wrench but she comes down from The Highlands to vist and still calls him her Lambkin.

He is a rare character and very, very intelligent, he knows for instance how to open the back door of the farmhouse and let himself in. We all curse him at times but love him all the time, you just can’t help it!!
