Great weather, nothing much new

Really, the work week just flew by. The last few afternoons I have gotten home punctually and had the opportunity to really spend a lot of time with the babies out in the paddock.  The lambs are just at the stage where they have discovered hay and grain.  They are very serious about their space at the feeder for a short time after I put the feed out.  And then the playtime begins :*)

Our one and only ewe lamb showed up on Friday afternoon with her tail bobbed just like Bertie’s.  She is a beautiful ewe and I hope that she grows well.  She is not sure that she likes or trusts Henny Penny, however! She was riveted to the fence as Bad Chicken was clucking contentedly on the other side of the barrier.  So I got a chance to snap a couple of photos of her.  She still does not have an official name yet.  We are working on it.
