Daily Farm Photo: 4/26/06


Green, Green, Green!

Lamb Report: Things are looking up. At 3am I went down to the barn to give Bruisie's spotted baby a bottle, and she got up and helped herself to mother's milk instead. This is the first time I've seen her do that since she was born on Saturday. Yes! She is back to dancing and is quickly making up for lost meals. She also has a new friend in the bonding suite next door--Auntie R. had a big baby boy this morning. Current Lamb Count: 19. Number Of Lady Sheep Still Expecting (for those of you who are wondering when this Lamb Report stuff is going to end already): 5 (not including any more surprise pregnancies).

Answers to all your Munching Mowing Machine questions from Monday are up! Click here. And thanks for your patience.

  1. Can't be anything better than to be up to your belly in sweet green grass. That is,if you are a sheep.

  2. I love this picture - I can just put myself in that field next to mom and baby and smell the green grass. Why can't we all be this happy and peaceful? The new lamb reports never get old and just remind us that even in the midst of what may sound like chaos (24-7 rock music) life still goes on.

  15. You're living the life I dream of. Maybe one day I'll get up the stones to wander away from sunny CA. In the mean time, I'm reading about your garden and sweet sheep and keeping this photo up on my desktop as I click away. Cheers!
