It's going to be a very cute filled week!

Current lamb count: 17. Ram lambs: 8. Ewe lambs: 9. Mothers: 9. Pregnant ewes remaining: 11. Number of enormous pregnant ewes already ensconced in a room at the Bonding Suite Inn (just to be on the safe side): 1 (that would be poor Friendly). Available rooms: 3. Ewes who decided to give birth to twins in the middle of a 20°F night: thankfully just 1 so far (last night).

Time this farmgirl got up this morning (and never went back to bed): 3:23. Number of hunky farmguys currently downstairs pan-frying up a local, pasture-raised chicken for dinner (!): 1. Cast iron skillets of hot cornbread all ready and waiting: 1 (love those Cornbread Gospels). Gotta go!

©, always working hard, always eating well—and always inundated with cute, especially this time of year.


  1. Oh these are the best photos! The babies are just to precious. Thank you so much for sharing them. It is always such a treat to read your blog and see your pictures - how can you not feel such joy when you see these babies?

    How is Friendly doing? I'm rooting for her!

  2. Cute babies, can't wait to see the rest! :)
    Fried chicken and cornbread, YUM!!

  3. LOVE these pics! I can't wait for us to get goats out here, and for now I will live vicariously through your sheep :)

  4. Honestly, I don't know how you stand it. I feel like i need insulin from the sweetness of these photos. I would be hopelessly in love and want to tuck every one of these little angels into a long row of dog beds in my house. I'd be a disaster. (Of course, the last time i visited an animal shelter, I left with the entire death row of 13 dogs.) Love seeing these pictures ad how differently marked each lamb is.

    1. Good for you, Tracy! I would if I could. I have 16 cats at present--and one dog. 6 cats are outside and 10 are in the house. Yes--it is a bit wild--but never dull!

  5. I see some gorgeous wool if I were a spinner and not just a knitter!
    Our goat season is coming up - love the babies!!

  6. Such beautiful lamb babies. Do they maintain their color when they grow up? Would make such interesting fleeces/yarn. Yes, I am a spinner. What do you do with the fleeces when they are sheared??

  7. If you don't have enough kisses to go around to all these precious little lambs, please call me.

  8. How do you stand all the cuteness? Thank you for sharing!

  9. I love your blog. Thanks for sharing. I grew up on a farm with chickens and pigs. Nothing cute to write about. How lucky are you?

  10. Baa! Baa! Black Sheep, have you any wool??? What precious lambs! Wish I could hug 'em!!

  11. Oh my gosh! If I had the money and a place to put them, I would give you however much you wanted for the top 2 lambs, they are the cutest things I have ever seen, esp the white one! I bet you get a lot of offers to buy these babies (and not for chops!)

    Thanks for the eye candy,



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!
