Ewes expecting!



The girls are expecting. There are a few here who still fit in their skinny jeans, but most of our flock will
lamb in the next six weeks. I'm so excited about having tiny lambs.


This picture shows the expectant moms better. You can see the ones who stick out on their sides. The ram is  the last one in line on the way to the barn. The moms are always the first there when dinner is served!

  1. oh Patrice, HOW EXCITING!!! The sheep ranches are to the east of us about 75 miles - i love driving past when all the little babies are springing up everywhere, cavorting, playing, without a care in the world in the green green grass...its like the most amazing definition of "being in the moment happy" there is!

  5. I always wanted to have sheep! I have always had Shelties and herding dogs, and wished I had sheep. My Maisie had a grandfather who was a Canadian Champion. I never had her tested; wish I had. She could herd cats well.
    Keep us posted; this is awesome. I love them.

    1. Shelties are great dogs. My sister had one. With that said, I'm not sure she could herd sheep. :)

  12. What a wonderful time of year. New little lambs in time for Easter. I have this obsession with little lambs lately because I keep seeing vintage figurines of them. I'm wanting to find a couple of little figurines for my Easter decor. Can't wait to see pics of the new babies when they arrive.

  15. Can't wait to see pictures of gamboling baby lambs! They are so adorable. We had a pet lamb- corriedale named Abigail. My Mom was a spinner and weaver and wanted her own wool source. She was a dear sheep and lived a very long and pampered life and gave us lots of glorious wool!!

  16. I can't resist ~"Ewe's not fat... ewe's fluffy"!!! I saw that saying years ago in a gift shop and it hasn't left me yet. I bought something that had this written on it for my mother. What the heck? At the gift shop she thought it was funny. As a gift to her, not so much!! Can't please some people! LOL
