Farm Photo 1/5/07: A Glimpse Back At Lambing Season 2006

Serena's Baby Girl On April 28th, 2006

Don't worry--she grew into those ears (but she still has that defiant stare). It's hard to believe that in two short months another lambing season will already be here. Before you know it, there'll be bouncing baby lambs everywhere.

    Hi SRHCB,

    Hi Impossible Jane,
    They really are adorable, aren't they? I was looking through some lamb photos yesterday and couldn't believe it when I came upon those ears. She looks like such a lady now. And of course all her spots are gone.

    And no (for those of you who are inevitably wondering, she doesn't have her "C" name yet. I really need to get on the ball with that, seeing as the "D" lambs will be born soon, LOL.

    Hi Mrs. A,
    Thanks so much for taking the time to write.

    I CountryGoalie,
    Well aren't you sweet? Thanks!

    Hi Pennie,
    A lot of memories fade quickly from season to season around here, but it sure seems like the 2006 lambing just ended. My flock is bigger than it's ever been (and Studly Jeff did, um, an even more thorough job than he needed to), so this is going to be a big year for babies. Big and crazy. We will be overrun with cuteness! (Which, of course, makes you--almost--forget all of the work and worry and middle of the night barn checks. . .)

    Hi Sha!!!
    What a wonderful surprise to hear from you. So glad you are back!

    Hi KM,
    Um, no, that's not your baby, because--if you remember--your baby (who still remains nameless because you haven't given her one) is black. Well, was black. Now she's bleached to a gorgeous CHOCOLATEY brown. But don't worry, I won't tell her you've already forgotten what she looks like. . . : )

  9. I came, I voted, and now I am ready for bouncing baby lambies. I can't wait. It's my favorite time of the year! So will this generation have names starting with a D? If so, I am starting my list!


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!
