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.

Making Friends…

Teigen was determined to make friends with some of the babies today.  It was the lambs first day out of their jugs…

Busy day lambing. Started with our CE ewe, Freckles having a beautiful single ewe without a hitch. She was up and eating within minutes. Audna was the next to go, but wasn’t making any progress. When I checked her the baby was presenting bum first. Was finally able to fish some legs out and Mark pulled the girl breech. Unfortunately she ended up getting her shoulders stuck and we could not get them out for what seemed like forever. Finally she freed up but it was too late. Audna has always twinned for us, but not this year. She is such a good mama and has TONS of milk. Then our other CE ewe, Whisper started to lamb. She threw a beautiful solid black little boy and we thought she was finished and then she threw another white patterned ewe. Gorgeous babies. This is Whisper’s first time being a mother so as soon as the little ewe lamb hit the ground we moved her over to Audna’s jug whom very happily adopted her! Whisper didn’t seem to notice, I think she would have done just fine raising twins but was feeling so bad for Audna as she called for her baby.

Everybody is happy and have full tummies.

The kids have had a good reminder on the brevity of life, once again. All in all they too enjoyed the day.

Imagine my surprise when I downloaded pictures and found this picture on there!  Surprise because I did not take it!  I am assuming one of the kids must have!  I just love it when they are able to see something that intrigues them and capture it on film.   🙂
