Last, but not least

I’m happily exhausted.


I got up at 3am for my normal “lamb watch” and found Matilda in labor.  An hour and a half later, her ram arrived!  At 9 1/2lbs, he’s a sweetie – up and ‘at ’em right away!  


By the time he was up and nursing and we were sure there were no more lambs coming, the birds were chirping, the sun was coming up, and the other ewes were calling for their breakfast!  It was chore time already!




We’re so pleased that all of the lambs and ewes are doing well!  Now we can concentrate on the garden, the fiber festival on the 28th, and our broilers that will be coming in a couple of weeks


— and of course, we can enjoy watching the lambs frolick!
