Proud Mama, Drifa!

Drifa with her ram lamb Finn, and ewe lamb Fern.

Finn, was the first to arrive and had a perfect delivery.  Little Fern was the last to make her appearance. Her front feet were coming out but no head. She had it way off to the side and twisted back. At 2 am I was convinced this was a headless lamb… I was about to give up fishing for it when it last I caught hold of it. It took several more minutes trying to align it correctly and finally pull her out. She span right to life and got busy looking for something to eat!

Drifa is such a good mamma. She was holding perfectly still while letting little Finn nurse and was licking little Fern off right after she was born. Fern, while trying to figure out her legs kept going backwards and Drifa would stretch her neck a little further and keep cleaning and holding perfectly still!

    what an amazing post this is~!!~ i find myself wishing (once again) that i was a farm girl although i know there is a lot of work involved it looks as though you and your family love what you are doing and care deeply for these animals.

    so much to see and yes, even learn here by simply looking at your shots.
    those little hooves are such a miracle~!!!!~

    thank you for sharing.

    Thank you for sharing the pictures. I am a spinner, but I do not have sheep. I love to go to a good shearing and be around the sheep. You almost made me feel like I was on the farm with you!
