or more accurately, Big Little Mac…
Patchwork Macaroon is a tiny little ewe. She’s not a mini-Jacob, she’s a miniscule Jacob. She is the last lamb of the prolific Craft’s Praline. When she’s pregnant, she always looks like she’s carrying sextuplets. There’s not much room in my little girl. She has a little more than a month to go and has the barest evidence of an udder. But, I’m guessing she caught during her visit with Gabriel.
During our recent heavy snowfall (quite unusual for our part of the country), Mac was literally belly deep in snow. Of course, she is just a bit lower to the ground than most of the ewes with her short legs and her big belly.
Despite her small size, she is a big producer.
Lambing will start here this month!
