Dugur just starting work for the night….
…watching over his flock under a painted sky.
We’re full of smiles here!
…the weekend is almost here!
Ohhh how time flies……
Already a month old!
Emmalynn is already three weeks old~why does time pass so quickly?
The sheep were turned out to a new rotation, Cloud was jumping for joy!
The kids found two more additions to Downy’s lttle family this morning…
Downy checking out a hatched egg…
She has two more eggs left, so we’ll see if she have any more additions later.
Today the kids found that we had another baby. Earlier this Spring we started to find goose eggs in various places. Not being sure if they were fertile eggs we started to gather them.
Then we found this up by the barn when we were lambing…
So we returned the couple of eggs that we had collected and put them with the rest of the nest. Downy took to faithfully setting on her nest. Her mate sat by her side and sadly (mysteriously) died, but Downy continued to patiently sit alone…
In between rain storms today the kids went up to work their fair lambs.
This is what they found…
We were all about to give up on her hatching out anything as she had been spotted off her nest a couple of times this past week. Her patience seems to have paid off!
