  1. What a cutie peeking around the post like that!

    i do not know much about sheep at all, much less this time of year BUT they sure look either exceptionally well fed or pregnant. Are lots of them pregnant? Even if well fed they do not have the problem we do of getting fat legs or thighs. It appears they do have the same well fed hip problem.

  3. The lady on the left especially looks like she needs groceries. Lambing season has to be not to far away?

  4. Um, dare I risk embarrassing Little Dee Dee and Friendly by admitting this is the group of sheep that isn't pregnant? ;)

    Of course Joe likes to remind me that "There's nothing little about Little Dee Dee anymore!" LOL.

    We've actually been keeping an eye on Friendly (the Katahdin ewe on the right) because she does look sort of pregnant - and there was that one night our strapping young ram Edward broke through 11 strands of barbed wire to get to this flock.

    We don't think she is, but we're probably going to put her in with the pregos so she can have extra grain just in case - although that means she'll get even fatter if she isn't. :)

    We only bred 17 ewes this year (and hopefully there won't be any surprises). We bred 17 last year and ended up with 30 lambs. This year's lambing should start the end of March. I can't believe it's almost that time already!

  5. You can't believe it? Neither can I! Was wondering how some of those lambs are looking 1 year on? XX

  6. Maybe they are just 'fluffy'.'s always fun to see your farm photos. Thanks for sharing them!


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!
