Friday night...the eve of the Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival...Annie, the final ewe yet to lamb, decides this is the night. We were reminded of the old cartoon: Farmer "I wish she would lamb so I could go to bed" and the ewe "I wish he would go to bed so I could lamb". No, really it was not that bad. Around 9:00 a beautiful border leicester ewe lamb was born! A EWE lamb!! Jonathan was very relieved. He is the main provider for the weekend and was not looking forward to dealing with a lambing ewe on his own. (He would have had plenty of support from the rest of the family.) Well, it is off to bed. We must get rest for the long drive at the crack of dawn tomorrow. We are off to the MSWF!
