to go back in the water barn …..da dum da dum.. Fess up, folks. Who remembers the movie and who refused to go in the water for months after?
Just when I was giving a grateful sigh of relief for a successful and trauma free lambing season and settling down to just watch them grow…
Marabelle decided to stretch the lambing season out with one more lamb. Marabelle left here as a lamb last year and returned home a couple weeks ago. Marabelle is a yearling, but had no problem figuring out her mothering duties..
I don’t know why or if it even holds true across all flocks and time, but it seems that first time mothers are especially obsessed with cleaning their lambs. Sometimes it seems the lamb will starve before the mother decides her cleanliness standards are met!
But, eventually standards are met and dinner is served. She looks so tiny under her mother compared to..
This time we really are finished lambing!
