Four on the floor - so to speak...

These two little ladies arrived yesterday afternoon - Wendy, in the little black suit, and Lovely Rita on the right.

They came out into a COLD night - it got down to 31 degrees here last night!!!

Their momma is Violet.

This evening, Luna's taking a breather after popping out (actually The Shepherd had to do a little bit of pulling on that one) Blanco - Ram lamb, white head and black body - and Little Eva - the grey & white & mousey brown mottled one - already The Shepherd's favorite.

Blanco gets a ride on the floating scale - one of the best presents I've ever given The Shepherd -

And the rest of the disgruntled flock - "Let us in! We want our hay! Who cares about those little pipsqueaks!" (Actually we're going to have to keep an eye on Pearl - always a very good mom, but she didn't get bred this year - guess she kept her legs crossed??? - but she's been eyeballing those babies with fond looks...)

That's the news from the farm tonight - I'm still crocheting like crazy on those sweaters - gotta get them finished before those baby girls get any bigger!

Gorgeous lambs- I love the variety. Nice short uneventful lambing with a nice ewe:ram ratio.

Glad to hear you are getting several ewe lambs this year! They are so cute. Love those speckled swirly ones, they are always my favorites too, even though I know they won't stay that way.

I know how excited I was to get TWO ewes in the four lambs here, so the Shepherd must be thrilled with THREE!

You do lead an exciting life there. Always busy and helping new life into the world.

It is a shame Widget is in Ohio. She is beautiful.

Congratulations! You're having a ewe year! WooHoo!
I know John will have trouble with deciding who stays - with girls, it's hard to give them up. :)
