It's Snowing Lambs!

We've been really busy! 77 lambs so far. You read it right! I can't believe it! Every day for the past week, there's been between 7 and 10 lambs coming into our farm world. Wowweeeeee! We're expecting lots more too!

As you can see, the paint numbering system is back in -- I'm totally agreeing with The Farmer now. It's so hard to see who belongs to which mama that some bit of order is needed! You'll all just have to live with the red and blue paint!

Here's the lambs that the brown and white ewe I told you about the other day. Isn't that the cutest little spotted lamb?


Tell me - are you all sick of this lambing stuff yet?

Wow - 77!!! That's a whole lot of cuteness running around! I for one am NOT tired of all the lamb/mother pictures. Keep them coming! But I' sure you and The Farmer must be a wee bit tired! Hope everyone stays warm.

Sick of lambs? Are you kidding? As I go through my bloglines, I keep thinking to myself "I wonder how the lambs are doing. Has Kristin had a moment to post an update yet?" I find this fascinating. And I'm drawn to that little black lamb. Hmmmmm. I wonder what that says about me?

Kat said...

My daughter wants to know what you do with all of them? Are all for wool? What breed are they?

I love your lambs and my girls do to. We are so enchanted by your posts. I just reread the post about gineau chicks in the kitchen. What a hoot. Your sense of the way each of us is connected to this world is amazing. BTW, I also loved your posts about children's authors. I have taken many of your suggestions.

Prissy said...

Oh, no. Please don't stop posting about the lambies! I love them. I wish I could visit and pet them.

The black and white one is a little calf. I'm quite sure it is.

Tired of the lambs - no way. Bring them on. I can't wait to open your blog each morning to see the cute wooly faces. More lamb posts please!

They are adorable! I love the lamb/sheep photos. And I'm so grateful I don't have to wake up super early and the cold and take care of them. I'm such a city girl at heart.

I love the lambing posts! Farm life is so foreign to most people these days, it's wonderful to have an inside view.

I'll never get tired of seeing all your wonderful photos of the lambs and ewes. It makes me smile and lifts my heart with each post. Thank you!

No complaints here. My family had a small flock of Hampshire sheep when I was growing up. I get a thrill out of seeing your lambs....

Andi said...

our neighbors sheep started lambing recently as well, it's so fun to watch them play :)
