I really expected to get outside this morning and find that Norma had dropped her lambs.. not! She is big as a house and has that look in her eye. She certainly had a good appetite, as you can see her on the left at the feeder. Our black ewe Raven is also due any minute now, and Maggie isn’t far behind! Maybe they will do us the favor and wait for the weekend?
Spring is here and lambing is coming along… we have 5 lambs so far and seven more ewes to go! The lambs are enjoying their freedom as the days are getting longer and (maybe?) a little warmer! The header above is a picture I took about a month ago at dawn of the top of the winter paddock area. The snow is melting now, but the temperatures don’t seem to be cooperating yet. Soon we won’t be complaining about the snow, we’ll be crying about “mud season!”
