Lambing Update

We had 5 lambs born today. Twins from my fabulous Honeysuckle, and singles from 3 yearling ewes. This brings us to 21 lambs thus far, with 8 ewes left to go. For those of you keeping track, we've had 8 ram lambs and 13 ewe lambs this year!

This photo shows a few of this years' lambs. You should be able to click on this photo to see a larger version. Our most recent lambs are show on the left; Honeysuckle's Legend and Lucia. The oldest lambs are shown in the background; Living Daylights and Lacey. Center shows my babies; Lollipop and Lexis. Lorelei is on the compost heap, and I have some pretty cool pics of her testing the bonds of gravity and the bounce in her legs. I'll get those up tomorrow.

I suspect Belladonna will have lambs by morning, but I've been saying that about Honeysuckle for days, so we will see. : )

  1. Looks like you will have no difficulties putting together the two starter flocks for the folks in Massachusetts.
