After a slow bit in the sheep barn, last year's yearling ewe lambs are beginning to lamb. The first time mothers are a bit dicey. Some are natural mothers and some want nothing to do with their babies. The past couple days, the teenage mothers have been stars.
Yesterday, this little black lamb was born. It is a little spitfire and the mom is doing a great job.
Two days ago, a different yearling had this cute little thing.
And here is super-mom Cora (Julia's bottle lamb from last year) with her January lamb Mora. Mora is growing like crazy and is looking strong and huge.
The bigger lambs congregate together constantly. Here some of them are having a party over along the fence line. I can't help but compare them to teenagers, hanging out with their friends far from the watchful eyes of their moms.
