Lambs are almost here!!!
I love this time of year.
The girls are starting to get very big and the anticipation is mounting.
The bellies are hanging a little lower…
and a lot wider. This is Althea and she isn’t due until the 20th.
Flirt and Queenie are two of the three first-timers we have lambing this year. Queenie is due any day and I can’t wait to see what she has!
*Sorry for the non-flattering shots!
Holly is the next one due – sometime this weekend. She has only ever had singles, so I am curious to see if she has twins this year. Nice sized twins is much easier on them than BIG singles.
Azera just keeps getting bigger and bigger…
and lower and lower. She has to wait until the 20th.
Here is Amber with her daughter, Allegany, from this last year. They are so cute together. Every morning when I go out to feed they are snuggled together and they are always with each other.
Hopefully I have lamb photos to share soon!
It is so interesting to me that your sheep look black and white or grey and white, but the batts I just spun most definitely look BROWN and white!
We have a wide array of colors in our flock 😉 The batts you just spun (which is beautiful by the way) came from Wrangler. He is a charcoal gray when sheared, but is very brown once the wool starts growing out. I made a felted jacket out of one of his daughter’s fleeces and her’s is the same way. Definitely ‘brown’.
Lambing is such an exciting time of year! It always seems the first four and a half months of gestation fly by and the last few weeks just crawl by slowly.
Love the new look of your blog! Very nice!! Here’s to a successful….stress-free lambing season full of twins!
They are all so beautiful. I can’t wait to see the little babies. Lambs are one of the cutest farm babies out there. The mommy’s to be look so healthy and ready to go.
and the last couple of days take the longest!!!
Thanks Amy! I agree – lambs (especially jacob lambs) are one of the cutest farm babies 🙂
