RE: Quiet today


We still have six lambs and are waiting on the last ewe to see what we
end up with. Thought for sure she'd have them this weekend but not yet.
I'm not going to be surprised if it's another set of triplets, she's
big. Got my fingers crossed for an easy delivery and healthy lambs.
The two mamas and their lambs went out for a while on Sunday. They are
so cute racing around and bouncing straight up in the air. Wish we could
let them have free roaming in the back all the time but we just do not
trust the dogs at all. It's all fenced and hotwired...but it would be
too awful if they found a hole. As it is one of the chickens got over
the fence somehow yesterday and I averted poultrycide by mere seconds.
