My internet has been less than reliable the last week and it is now rainy and muddy again, but I still wanted to share these photos ;)
We have been stuck in a weather funk, ok maybe I have been in a funk because of the weather. Whatever it is, I have been very thankful for the brief moments when the sun shines….
and watching the lambs race around the pasture certainly helps :)
It has now been 11 days since my last post and we have had 12 new babies in that time period and it has been frosty and foggy for all of them!
The still pregnant girls spend a lot of time wandering out to the pasture…
back to the barn…
and giving their poor legs a break.
This picture makes me laugh. Althea has now lambed, but her legs look so little and it is exaggerated by the big boy, Dreamer, standing behind her.
Dreamer is really cute with the lambs.
Seeing the babies snuggled up next to their mom is one of my favorite things about this time of year.
At only a couple of days old, they are already trying out what is edible and what isn’t.
As the title said, we had lots of frosty mornings with the temperatures in the low 20’s. I am thankful the next batch of lambs is going to come in a bit warmer weather.
Aragon is also happy to be waking up ‘frost free’.
We are all happy to say ‘good-bye’ to that bank of fog that would roll in mid-morning!
We have 23 lambs and this next week looks to be extra busy with 17 girls due.
Here is a small sample of the lambs we have.
