Re: New Lambs

Cool. Baby lambs are just about my favorite animals. When I was raising them in the San Joaquin Valley, Cyndi, we used to shear the ewes around Thanksgiving so the dumbies would stay in their sheds to lamb.

We have our first new faces of the season, twin ewe lambs born this morning.
Of course it is cold and raining, that's how sheep decide when to give
birth. All winter it was dry, but now... Anyway they looked pretty good,
both of them up and looking for the milk faucets. We couldn't tell for sure
if they were nursing - some ewes don't mind you crawling underneath to make
sure the baby is latched on, but this one was getting pretty nervous so we
left everyone alone. They are in their little shelter and hopefully mom will
not lead them out into the rain. I always fret the first day but they did
look strong and healthy, so chances are good all will be well (wish I had a
webcam out there). Three more to go!
I was going to have husband rototill this weekend but if the rain does not
let up, he can't. The paper claimed it might even snow but I don't think
it's cold enough for that. Maybe in the hills. I have got to start my tomato
and pepper seeds though, I'm way behind. And it's past time to plant peas.
Of course, I have scaled back the veg garden - no really! I did! - so it
isn't such a big deal.
