We had a surprise lambing while we were gone on our trip over the weekend…IMG_0531

She was even born on Valentine’s Day…and it’s the letter “H”‘s year for naming lambs…so we couldn’t resist naming this little girl Heart!                   IMG_0524

The mama is one of our Suffolk ewes and daddy, we are thinking is one of our Icelandic rams!  An unknown breeding must have happened before we separated our sheep last fall.IMG_0537

But she’s awfully sweet and like the looks of her.  🙂IMG_0543

We were glad that our older kids were at home.  When they went out to feed in the afternoon she was dried off and had a full tummy.  🙂  Thank goodness she is half Icelandic to give her some vigor.
