Newborn Lambs

Yesterday afternoon, I visited our neighbors, Roger and Liz, to watch as their sheep were sheared. I took lots and lots of pics and a video of the whole process. It was fascinating. I planned on sharing my shearing adventure with you today, but I had computer problems last night that threw a wrench in my plans. So the shearing will have to wait until tomorrow.

But I have a consolation prize for you today: newborn lambs!  While I was watching the shearing, Liz asked if I would like to see some lambs born just yesterday. So I followed her across a lot and into a nice airy building with individual stalls for the ewes and their newborn lambs.

This little lamb was only a couple hours old. Newborns weigh about 10 pounds.

He’s one of a set of twins.

Their mama had been sheared earlier in the day.

In the next stall, this ewe took a stance of protection over her babies. She looked all tough.

“These are mine. Don’t come any closer.”

But then she did this:

Tee hee. So much for looking all tough. She’s excused though. It had been a long day for her and her new family.

This ewe had not been sheared just yet. She was a proud mother of twins as well.

One of them stood for the longest time just staring at the strange woman with the camera.  Isn’t this the sweetest face?

Soon these little guys will be strong enough to join the rest of the herd where the lambs will spend long days growing, exploring, and playing with each other.

Cattle, corn, wheat, beans, mud, snow, ice, and drought. Plenty of fresh air and quiet. Our life is sometimes heartbreaking, sometimes joyous, but never boring.

    Have you named the sheep? Do you sell the sheared wool or do you spin your own yarns?

      Hi MrsB,
      The sheep actually belong to our neighbor who was kind enough to allow me to take pics and do a post about them.
