That’s right, we still are waiting on Esther! But it’s ok, the weather is beautiful and it’s the beginning of our April break from school. I am ready!
Last night while I was out feeding our bottle girl her nighttime feed I stayed out in the sheep paddock to enjoy the stars and the balmy night. I was listening to the peepers and I began to hear a rhythmic squeak followed by a little hiccup. I couldn’t figure out what was going on and went to a spot near one of the greenhouses where we usually get wood frogs at this time of year, although it’s so dry I couldn’t imagine that any were hiding over there. But it was such a curious sound that I kept looking.
Tracking down the source proved to be quite amusing!. It was a lamb using his learner’s permit for cudding! He was all but dead to the world, then every so often a little squeak would come from his belly and a few seconds later I could see a little ball of cud shoot up into his mouth and his little jaws would chew it up… the whole time with his eyes closed. I would have thought that each little pop would have awakened him fully, but it didn’t. It was hysterical.
