The sun has come out and it was a beautiful morning to go out and take pictures while I was doing chores.
Eclipse was one of the first girls to greet me. Almost everybody is weaned now.
These boys must have had a party last night! Actually they had to work for a living yesterday. They are older wethers and have a pretty easy life here. The only requirement is that they grow a nice fleece – except yesterday I used them for a couple herding lessons and it looks like it wore them out.
The lush green grass is having a nice effect on everyone. Reno is maturing nicely.
Next it was time to turn all the lambs out. There are a few ewes with lambs still and some yearlings, but the rest are lambs.
Nothing like having lambs 4 months apart! The lamb in front is Venture and the one in back is Kizmet.
The little guys are almost getting lost in the grass! The new lambs finally have names and I got some good pictures of them today – introducing…
Magoo had to check them out.
They were having a great time playing outside.
My boy – Wrangler.
We had 13 more ducklings hatch on Wednesday – 4 white and 9 gray (mallard colored).
So, the teenagers moved outside. They still have a light to stay warm at night and seem to be doing well. You can see their feathers starting to come out.
Last, but certainly not least is Major. He turns 15 soon and still takes his position as farm manager seriously. He has delegated the security detail to Kate now because his eye sight and hearing aren’t what they used to be.
Enjoy your Sunday and Happy Mother’s Day!
