Busy with lambing

The barn is a very active place right now, all 10 lambing jugs are full and a makeshift pen is waiting in the wings.


Total lamb count so far is 21, with many unexpected twins to first-timers!


Some are nearing ready to be turned out to the pasture to open up jugs for new lambs, and some have already been released to enjoy the sunshine of the great outdoors.


We are enjoying the sounds of mommas calling to lambs, and the little baas of the lambs answering. We are also enjoying the peacefulness of them resting calmly together.


It is a very tiring but rewarding time of year.

Everyone is anxiously awaiting the arrival of our first colored lambs as the first 21 have all been white.
