Little Lambs

Nellie Belle surprised us with twin ewes yesterday, not 24 hours after Kat delivered her little rams.   They were patiently waiting next to the barn for us to let them into the ‘nursery’, where they’ll spend a few days with Kat and her lambs.  The first photo is a little family portrait, with Nellie’s 2010 lamb Lexi and this year’s babies.

    Conversation between Ian and Lisa over breakfast:
    Lisa: I want to live Connie’s life, but it’s too much work.
    Ian: Why don’t you just hang out at the neighbor’s who have sheep, cattle, and an organic garden too?
    Lisa: It doesn’t seem to be as much fun when I can see the hard work.
    Ian: We’ll get you a pager for when the ewes start to lamb

    Yay! Any more babies expected soon? You have a pregnant goat or two, don’t you?
