After the great lambie freedom move yesterday, they have sorted themselves and seem to be finding their way in the big paddock on the hill. Last night when I went out to check on them it had been raining, so everyone was in the greenhouse. But they were not organized the way I expected to find them: only one of Fern’s babies was actually sleeping with her, and most of the lambs were scattered around, cuddled up to whomever. It was definitely a hoot! 2 lambs were cuddled with one of our yearling ewes, 2 were snuggled with Zorro the llama, and the others were just here and there. I have not seen that happen a lot, but everything was good and no one had a meltdown in the night. The rain must have stopped a little after midnight, and by the morning they were all sleeping out on the paddock hill. A little more organized by family, too.
Two nights ago we began hearing the spring peepers. It wasn’t very strong then, but tonight it’s almost deafening! I love it :*) Maybe spring is really almost upon us. Here’s hoping! (Although it appears as though we need to get through another snowfall tomorrow first…)
