Season of new hope returns with birth of Spring

IT WAS the special moment when weeks of heartache finally lifted from the Bryant family and spring's bright colours burst through.

Faced with the traumatic task of burying 13 sheep after a pair of dogs twice invaded their backyard and savaged many of their beloved pets, the Booral residents one surviving ewe has blessed the family with the gift of a newborn.

Aptly named Spring, the offering of the tiny lamb has given the Bryant's something the killer dogs could never take away - hope.

Dawn Bryant went even further, suggesting also that the lamb had delivered the perfect tonic for her family to move forward and bask again in spring's colours of happiness.
