Zayne…

Last Sunday, my littlest little boy stayed home from church with me to tend to the sheep.  We had a very wonderful morning…

Yes, we now have three bottle babies and they are waiting very impatiently while I make their bottles up and Zayne decides which jello flavor he wants.

Little ewe…

P5061812

This little ewe lamb was born just a bit before noon.  She’s just a wee-little-thing.  Maybe 3 lbs.  Tori helped her get her stomach full of colostrum by syringe feeding her. P5061815 P5061817 P5061818 P5061819 P5061821

After getting a full belly we left baby and mom alone.  When we went to check on them a half hour later the little ewe had figured out how to stand and nurse from her mama, all on her own!P5061826 P5061827

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.

Delightful…

Delight this morning…

Tori went out to check mamas at lunch and found Delight on her back and legs flailing. Tori was able to get her turned over right away and when Delight stood up she noticed she was starting to go into labor.  Thankful for observant young ladies today!

Her twins!

When we did our midnight check last night, I could hear babies crying loudly and knew something was up. Thor, our Akbash LGD, was guarding one of the hoop houses and when I shined my light in there I found these two treasures up and trying to nurse. I thought it was pretty neat to see Thor protecting Bliss and her babies. Thor had to stop by and see how things were this morning. IMG_9727
