A belated Happy New Year to you all!
We had our first lamb of the year born on January 31st. Not when we typically lamb, but this was not a mistake! We bred two of our ewes to lamb early on purpose. Most 4-H lambs are born this time of year, and we wanted to see how we liked January/February lambing. To be honest, we aren't too crazy about it. *grin* It's been very cold and we have a ton of snow. Maybe someday when we have a bigger sheep shed. But for now, we're happy that most of our ewes will be lambing in March as usual. In the meantime, we were excited to welcome our first lamb. A single ram lamb, weighing in at 17 lbs. Tabitha did a good job her second time lambing! Ivy enjoyed petting the lamb, and "riding" Maggie. She's fearless, that girl of mine. *smile*
We just got about 10 inches of fresh snow dumped on us yesterday.
How's the weather where you live?
Are you ready for spring, or still loving winter like me?
I want to know!
