Th- th-th-that's all folks!

All finished lambing. Hurray! 73 lambs all told, 38 ewe lambs and 35 ram lambs...well, now a whole bunch are wethers. : ) Lost

So, I washed up all of the towels and little lamb coats and put them away for another year. Still have milk replacer in the kitchen and bottles because I'm supplementing a couple of lambs from a couple of my old, old ewes that just don't milk like they used to.

Tonight after work I went out and watched the group have their evening races while the mothers ate their dinner. It's hilarious. They run and split up at one point and meet back up again. It makes me smile. 

So, this is Stella....I named her this because I wanted to go out and yell "STELLA!!! STELLA!!!" just like Marlon Brando. Hey, a girl gets her farm kicks where she can.

Stella is a twin out of an old ewe . She sort of got lost in the shuffle for a few days until I took off her lamb coat she was all hunched up and sunk in. Now she's filling out and is my sidekick and her mother is acting like I'm doing her a favor instead of tossing Stella into La-La land of bottle fed lambs.

I have a new project....will share next time.


  1. Glad to see your back. I love your lamb photos. I didn't have lambs this year. I miss them so much.
    Have a good spring

    1. Hi Robin! Taking a year off from lambing or moved on to other things? I can't believe how fast the lambs are growing. So glad you commented. I've missed "seeing" all of my bloggy friends. I'll visit yours soon to see what you've been doing. : )


Share your thoughts! Thanks for stopping by!
