What a wonderful blessing babies are!  I feel particularly blessed to have been able to help (I hope) my beautiful sister-in-law through their birth process and take pictures of this wonderful and exciting time.  It really has helped to heal my heart!

X-tra Special…

Well it finally happened.  After 6 years of shepherding we have our first bottle baby.  Right now no one seems to mind and have affectionately called the little ewe lamb, Snoopy.

This was an extra special feeding since the kids were able to share it with their cousin!  IMG_1877 IMG_1878 IMG_1880 IMG_1883 IMG_1884 IMG_1885

We are hoping to be able to graft little Snoopy onto the next ewe that has a single.

Crazy Busyness…

It’s been a bit of a hectic week to say the least.  Here are a few things going on here…

(Please click on the pictures to make them larger)

Zayne, waiting his turn to ride on Iris.

Cousins, getting to experience the farm.

Emma, enjoying the beautiful spring day.

Calypso, a black grey mouflon enjoying the sun.

Bluebirds are back!!

Road trip, then down a very long very bumpy road. So bumpy it shook some bolts loose on our rack.

One reason for the road trip. Ram exchange!

Ewe in the evening light....

Before Mark left to do some soil sampling, the lil' boys wanted a picture.

Waiting for ewes to explode!

Teigen testing out his bike for first time this spring.

Another reason for the road trip...Thor! (on the right, Dugur on the left)

I'm not even sure what the boys are doing here?

The last reason for the trip...Ali and Bambi!

Waiting....Waiting...Waiting

Linking up with….

Cousins…

To say the kids were excited to find out that they had a new little girl cousin is putting it mildly…

At a little before 5 a.m. after Kimberly was born, I came home and found Zayne asleep in our bed.  His little head popped up and asked “Wha she had?”  When I told him a little girl he smiled the biggest smile, put his head back down and fell promptly back to sleep.  He also practiced saying “Kimbery” all day.  🙂

Can't you just see these two getting into trouble later?
