Friday Dose of Cute: Surrounded!

Only two of these lambs are hers, and what's really amusing is that the little Katahdin who kept trying to climb on top of her isn't one of them.
Two years ago, we added a Katahdin ram and two Katahdin ewes to our flock, in the hopes of building up the parasite resistance in our mostly Suffolk sheep (they're the ones with the distinctive black faces and legs). So far it's going really well, and we're very happy with our hair sheep.

Want to get to know them better?

© Copyright 2010, the finally getting some rain (yay!) foodie farm blog where not long ago I found out that I grew up in one of the few places in the U.S. that doesn't regularly get thunderstorms, and 15 years after moving to Missouri—where a quiet rainfall feels like a rarity—I kind of love them, but at the same time they still tend to scare me just a little.


  1. Lamb babysitter? Do all the other ewes go partying in the grass, while this poor girl is saddled with all the responsibility?

  2. Obviously a wonderful mama! Those lambs are so adorable.

  3. Read that you got rain yesterday, hope you did not get the horrible weather today. Sounds like it was nasty tornado weather. Take care.

  4. LOL. Could also be called "Attack of the Babies". Just love all your photos!


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!
