Feisty and Daisy

The noon barn-check brought about a big surprise. Feisty was lying in front of the field shelter with a nice size ewe lamb. According to our lambing calendar, she was a week early. It was misty and a very strong wind was blowing up the hill from Wolf Creek, but mom and lamb were ok.

We got them into the barn and into a lambing jug where Feisty started a long process of patiently covering her little ewe with straw to warm her up.

When she got everything situated just so, she also snuggled down in the warm straw for a much deserved long rest. What a great mom!

Daisy is a Wensleydale-Coopworth X Lincoln Longwool cross.
