Lambs by the dozen ~



It's been a loooooooooong, crazy, fun, emotional, tiring week. We're lambing! I don't even know right this moment how many we have :) When they come in fours, you get a herd a time.

Before I hit the hay I wanted to share our set of quads with you all. Pictured above is Chammomille with Tylerfarm's Clary, Carlisle, Cecily & Cecil. Chammy is a shetland/finnn cross bred to a finn ram. All about the same weight, size, etc. Two ewes, two rams. They are all healthy with full bellies with tails wagging. Chammy delivered them all hind feet first but delivered them herself. She's an awesome ewe and mother.

I just finished making butter and now am off to bed. It's looking like we will have more lambs tomorrow. Just a few more ewes to go. I'll post photos of all the new babies soon.

Have a great weekend eveyrone :O )0

They are so sweet. I just love the lambs. I don't know what I would do with 4 at a time. I'm so happy that they all came out okay. We have had a surprise two times. Our ewes had delivered, cleaned them up and surprised us twice now. We come out and they are done. Can't wait to see more pics.
