March Snow and a New Lamb

It's snowing this morning and I know we won't have much more snow this spring. The weather is starting to warm up and there is going to be a lot of melting this week. Mud season is arriving - along with sap running and sugar houses in full gear for the next month.

 

I love taking photos of the sheep in the snow - all the gray and the white and the gentle falling flakes.  I'm sure the sheep are sick of the snow and just want to see some green grass. I got a great surprise upon arriving at the fence line. There on the hay bale was a brand new little lamb. 


Two yearlings were trying to claim the lamb but luckily it was easy today to tell who was the real mom.


All the other yearlings were quite interested.

 

Later today we will carry the lamb with the mama following her up the hill and put her in my truck. Then she'll go down to the barns so that the lamb stays warm and we can keep an eye on both of them.

Hope everyone is having a nice weekend.
