It has felt like Spring for the last couple of days. I haven’t had to bundle up when I head out to do chores, flowers are blooming, birds are singing, the swallows are back, the ducks are sitting on nests of eggs, the grass is growing, and the lambs…
are getting very BIG! This is Dreamer with his mama Holly. The grass doesn’t really look like it is growing out in the pastures, but I can tell it is by all of the hay that is left in the feeders. The sheep are thoroughly enjoying all of the spring grass. A lot of people wonder why we lamb in the freezing cold month of January and the reason is because the lambs are now old enough to fully utilize all of the grass we will have very soon.
We visited Tammy and her new lambs this afternoon. You might remember that she had Jacob cross lambs last year but this year she used a Blueface cross ram on her ewes. Her lambs are adorable!
This little girl was born just before we got there.
The fleeces are so pretty!
I think my son is getting bored with lambs right now, but he loved the goats…
and they loved him back – as only a goat can 🙂
It almost made me want to get him a goat – a very BIG almost 🙂 We will just visit Tammy’s!
He also had a LOT of fun playing in the rain.
It was a typical Spring day in the Northwest – rain, sun, rain, sun, etc. He was a little disappointed when it stopped raining 🙂 I personally enjoy the sunny times!
