It’s official! Spring has sprung here at Dancing Aspens Farm. Elizabeth, Maddie’s ewe, lambed unassisted in the wee hours of the morning to a healthy little ewe lamb.
She was very wet and starting to get a bit cold and was having some trouble getting latched on, so we jugged them and got baby Spring dried off.
This ewe is a bit crazy and wild but she stood perfectly still for little Spring to nurse. I ended up milking out some colostrum and syringe fed Spring a bit. Once she had a bit in her tummy she was ready to go on her own.
I just knew it would be a glorious day, the morning was bright with sun and blue skies!
It had been a bit of a frosty night!
I’m not sure why these 4 decide to roost outside?
There are signs of spring everywhere…
I was able to escape the farm and all my responsibilities for a couple of hours and took a little drive to Glacier Park, more blue skies!
These two pictures are straight out of the camera using a couple of different settings…
I stayed for the sunset too! 🙂
Even more exciting this morning, bright and early, Hayden ran up to the barn to check the ewes before we left for church and found a ewe missing…
He found her in the barn with an extra!
The wonderful madness has begun!!! Maddie’s Suffolk ewe, Elizabeth lambed without assistance in the wee hours of the morning to an adorable little ewe lamb! Our Icelandics are not due for another 3 weeks though.
