After a long day of work on Monday, I drove to the farm and walked right in the barn and went about my normal feeding routine. As I was throwing the hay in the trough I heard the sweet sound a new mother makes to her lamb. I kinda laughed and kept going. I heard it again, but this time it actually sunk in what that sound was. I look over in the far stall to my left and I see.........
Here was a adorable long legged little lamb. I rushed in and check it out immediately. Finally! A Ewe!!! I was one happy sheppardess.
Great Sunday surprise! Roxanne had her lamb!
I am sitting here starting to plan my 2013 garden, and it made me start thinking about 2012's garden and lambs. So here is a quick slide show of 2012!
Yesterday, while making the daily visit to the sheep. I looked to see how Pushy was progressing. She looked good, but looked like she could still have 1 week to go....... Boy were we wrong!
Mama and both babies are doing wonderful!
We have doing a variety of different things before the rains come. Here is a couple pics of what we have been up to.
Today started off prett slow and lazy,
But after I found my ambition I got quite a bit done.
My name is Christine. I am an Accountant at a local lumber mill for a living, but that just pays the bills. My real life starts when i go home to the farm. I am an Avid gardener and shepherdess :) This blog will focus on my life on the farm. The joys of owning Dorper sheep, and the fun and excitment of gardening and cooking.
