Each new day seems to bring a new lamb to our little farm. Of course, the little lambs decided to come at the coldest time we have had in the last several years. It has been down to 4 degrees for several nights. I don't know how we always have such great timing!!! We have had a hard time keeping the twins alive. We rescued the little "house" lamb and we have lost 2 twins. With each twin birth, one lamb is strong and one lamb seems to be weak. We have had one successful twin birth this year. By successful, I mean that both the lambs are still alive and still outside. Our little house lamb may be come a little shop lamb. We are letting her go out and play during the sunny part of the day. She seems to do fine with the flock. She did tried to get milk from our ram. Apparently that didn't go over too well. Perhaps it is confusing to her having both the boys and girls in our family giver her the bottles! Then she tried to see if our Black Angus calf had any milk to offer her. This calf is usually pretty calm, but she wasn't at all happy about being violated by a little sheep.
grace and peace,
