Photos from the Farm

Some lamb and sheep photos from this week. It has been very cold (again) and we even had more snow. This week they are promising warmer temperatures. 

This is one of our rams - he is the oldest guy and although we were thinking of retiring him from breeding, we have decided to give him another year. He is a Polypay and has sired some very nice lambs. His daughters are lambing now and they are taking good care of their babies. 

These two little twins were born this week to this yearling. She is doing a great job. I posted a little video on Instagram just after they were born that you can see here. Make sure you have your sound up so you can here the mama talking to her babies. 

While you are there, check out this photo of the lamb that almost didn't make it last week. It is now living large in the kitchen. Lucky lamb. She is rather attached to me. 

There is always a sheep on top of a bale of hay.

I think this may be my favorite picture of the week. 

Hope you all are having a good Sunday.

Many Thanks for the lovely sheep posts! long ago I used to work on farms and spent many enjoyable seasons lambing (Ok they were mucky & hard work too but fun)We used to use Brut men's after shave as a lamb adopter/scent masker. After that I never looked at Chaps that wore it in quite the same fun memories. Beautiful photos and very memory inducing descriptions THANK YOU!
