Unexpected new life

We did not anticipate all this new life that we are seeing.  Both the neighbor and I have had a surge of births that we did not plan.  Boys will be boys and if there are girls around, they use all their wits to get out and make a visit.   As DH says, “They have all day to think about how to escape while we have other things to do”  Plus the ewes seem to be having earlier babies this year than usual.  We will have some very nice fiber pets for sale this summer.


This morning, numbers 7 and 8 were born.   I am thankful that I only have 5 bred for April, because I already have a crowded barn and because of all this rain, everyone wants to be inside.

By this afternoon, mom decided one was enough.  So the ram lamb is in the house.

    What a sweet little lamb! I really like your Sun Bonnet Sue quilt, too. Happy Weekend!

  2. Bottle babies in the house are so much fun – until they figure out how to get out of their pen for the 10th time…! Or when you’re 2 minutes late with their bottle! He’s a good-looking fellow!
