2010 Lambs Are Arriving!

March 8, 2010

Desana was first again this year.  Twin ram lambs were born around 8:30 pm in her favorite spot-the side of a steep hill.  They are in the barn and doing well.  Two ewes left to lamb-and I think Bernice, Desana’s daughter, will be next.  I hope to have photos tomorrow-the lighting in the barn at nighttime isn’t the greatest.


Waiting for Lambs….

March 3, 2010

There must be something about lambing time-seems to be when I generate the most posts (and then nothing).  Maybe it’s because I want to share the excitement. 

No lambs yet-earliest would have been yesterday.  We only have three breeding ewes-fewest ever.  We had to put down our flock matriarch last fall and I really miss her.  She was bossy and kept the flock in line.

I have no idea where our camera is-have to go on a search.  The manual is sitting right in fornt of me-so maybe I’ll have some pictures of new lambs in the next few weeks.

Stay tuned!!
