New Life Here at the Farm

We are almost mid-way into February. Since I have posted here, we have had THE weather. First below zero for several days....... two snowstorms..... then a big melt-down. All through the weather events, life goes on. The lambs keep coming. Lambing started out rough this year but things have gotten better over the last few weeks. Here are some recent photos from the barn. 

The earlier born lambs are starting to pick at the hay. 

They love to snuggle down into the hay. With the rain and melting snow, it is difficult to keep the barn dry so the remnants of hay bales help dry things out a bit. 

So sweet this little one.

This black mama actually had a set of twins. The white one is hiding behind her. We have been waiting for a couple weeks for her to lamb - she just kept growing bigger. She is an awesome mom. Do you see her bug-eyes? That is because she was being protective of her lambs and didn't want me anywhere near them. We let her out of the pen and they are doing great. 

Another sweet one - probably about a week old. 

In this photo you can see the size differences. 

Here's The Farmer feeding one of his bottle lambs. This little guy's mama doesn't have enough milk for twins so she gets supplemented with a bottle and lamb milk replacer. 

More cuteness.

At the end of the day the sky was turning a pretty pink. 

That's it for today.

I show these to my 5-year-old and he makes sounds that only dogs can hear re: the cuteness. :)
