Daily Farm Photo: 4/9/06

Alisha's inquisitive baby boy, born 4/6/06

First time mother Alisha is Doll Face's 2004 daughter. Today Silly Wendy (Doll Face's 2002 daughter), gave birth to a healthy and huge baby girl. If you thought Silly Wendy was big in this photo
taken a month ago, you should have seen her this morning.

Ten-year-old Doll Face is from my very first 'crop' of lambs, and I'm thrilled to have so many of her offspring in my flock. The sheep like to sleep out under the stars in the barnyard, but if one of Doll Face's daughters (or her triplet sister, Mary) is in a bonding pen in the barn, she will stay in there, too, with her rapidly growing, sweetheart of a son curled up at her side.

  1. Oh! I want the sweetest baby! She's so tiny and cute.

  2. That noise you hear is my heart breaking from the sweetness. I think the all-black ones are my favorites too. :-)

    I can't wait until we get our sheep! That day can't come soon enough, especially because I saw the first kudzu sprouts this week.

  3. Baa Baa Black sheep,
    have you any wool?
    yes sir, yes sir,
    three bags full.

    Wow! I haven't thought about this poem since I was a child.

  4. And soon he will grown into those legs! Hee hee.


December 2015 update: Hi! For some reason I can't figure out, Blogger hasn't been letting me leave comments on my own blog (!) for the last several months, so I've been unable to respond to your comments and questions. My apologies for any inconvenience! You're always welcome to email me: farmgirlfare AT gmail DOT com.

Hi! Thanks for visiting Farmgirl Fare and taking the time to write. While I'm not always able to reply to every comment, I receive and enjoy reading them all.

Your feedback is greatly appreciated, and I especially love hearing about your experiences with my recipes. Comments on older posts are always welcome!

Please note that I moderate comments, so if I'm away from the computer it may be a while before yours appears.

I try my best to answer all questions, though sometimes it takes me a few days. And sometimes, I'm sorry to say, they fall through the cracks, and for that I sincerely apologize.

I look forward to hearing from you and hope you enjoy your e-visits to our farm!
