A Very Nice Way to Start Your First Day
These two cutie pies were born back on the morning of April 9th and are doing just fine. On the 8th, we arrived home extremely late from dropping my dear English pal, Betty Western, at the airport, and when I made my last lamb check about 2am, nothing much was happening (well, except for babies bouncing all over the place and keeping the moms awake).
By the time I straggled back down to the barn several hours later, first time mother E-4 (yes, one of these days she'll get a real 'E' name, I promise) had chosen this cozy, sunny corner to have her twins. The next morning I walked down to the barn (somewhat earlier this time) and experienced deja vu when I saw Lucky Cherry with her newborn twin girls in the very same spot.
Safe and sound and soaking up the sun—such a beautiful sight to see during lambing season.

© Copyright 2010 FarmgirlFare.com, the green and leafy foodie farm blog where these past few weeks of extra warm days means that there are blossoms everywhere you look and sweet new grass for sheep and donkeys to munch on (and for my hunky farmguy Joe to mow with the shiny new lawn mower we impulse-purchased yesterday while buying lumber for the new haybarn we start building Monday to replace the one that's falling down). It's the heart of hay growing season, but we really need a little less heat and a lot more moisture in order to get a decent crop. Please send some rain our way!
