Oddspot in today's Melb Age newspaper.

"A New Zealand ewe has been fitted with a bra after a triplet pregnancy left her udders damaged and saggy. After the romney ewe - from a farm south of Auckland - gave birth to three black lambs, a vet recommended a bra to lift her udders off the ground. Her owners struggled to find a bra big enough, but lingerie outfit Rose and Thorne donated a 24J size bra. The ewe has since been named Rose"
I'd have called her "Busty"
I wonder who originally owned the bra! grin

Maybe someone whose favourite song was Ewe Lift Me Up?

Happy New Year, Rufus grin

You make me laugh!

What a Zealous vet to come up with this New idea.

It's a great idea but certainly not only in NZ.

Vets have been doing this for a long time and I do believe an episode of 'All Creatures Great and Small' once covered a similar idea.

Does a "dd" bra out rank a "24J"?
I imagine the donors were ladies with the "fuller figure" grin OoRoo
