Lambing 2010

Ok, so I didn't stay focused on the Vikings these last couple of weeks or tapestry weaving either.
I was back and forth to the barn, watching the flock grow. Waiting nervously, lending a helping hand with paper towel when needed. So now...... there are only two more ewes to go and .... perhaps one will pop today =-)

                                                  Dotty, the first ewe to lamb this year, almost 3 weeks ago now

                                                 Harriett's two ram lambs, born the day after Dotty's ewe!

                                                       Harriett-II and her first lamb, a strong little ewe.

                 Annie-3, and her two boys, one had an inverted eyelid, so he was painted purple to get him cleaned up!

 Dotty-3, another first time mom, this ram lamb arrived yesterday morning, in the pasture. She was working hard, and we did lend a hand, and then got the two safely to the lambing pen in the barn, where they got acquainted and are happy as anything, later today I will let them out with the others.

Those lambs  and their dedicated moms are fun, busy, bouncy and healthy. I am thankful!
Off to the barn!
