Preparing for Lambing…



With some of ewes taking on the appearance of swallowing barrels, whole, we have been busying ourselves preparing for lambing…


Mark moved the sheds to the maternity pen, which will be transformed into lambing jugs.


Zayne, watching all the activity…



The best fencing crew, ever.  They are replacing fencing with some hog panels so we will have easier access to both pens.


Moving manure to one of the many compost piles…


A first time lamber, bagging up!




I think we managed to catch these two with artificial insemination!  (We are members of a coop that  imported semen from Iceland)


We still have a bunch of work to do, it always seems never ending but we are getting closer.   I need to recheck and clean out the vet box and lambing supplies this week and make sure I have everything we might need. Watch for lambs within the next two weeks!

    Can’t wait to see the adorable lambs in your photos! It always amazes me how round the animals get when they are ready to give birth. 🙂
