It’s been so long since I wrote a blog post! If you are subscribed to my blog, you are probably getting this and saying “who?”
It has been a year of more computer duties than usual with not much time for sitting down and musing in my blog. Not much time for sitting down at all, come to think of it. Forget musing.
With the start of 2016 lambs comes the inspiration to revive the blog.
Patchwork Marabelle took a look at the calendar and said “it’s time!” Patchwork Rolex (because he was right on time) was born just before midnight on 3/7. He’s a handsome two horned boy sired by Kenleigh’s Casanova.
Just after midnight on 3/8, Patchwork Tempo delivered a flashy ram lamb. Last year this same cross produced a lilac ram that was barely 15% color. It pays to try again. Patchwork Joker because genetics has a sense of humor.
The afternoon of 3/8, Patchwork Praline found a sunny spot and delivered the first ewe of the season and Chester’s Banjo’s first lamb. Brio is full of vitality!
Wednesday was a day off for the ewes.
Thursday noon, Patchwork Jazz walked down the hill and delivered the first set of twins of 2016. Banjo is doing a good job. Patchwork Ella (in front) and her brother, Patchwork Domino. Ella and Domino and Jazz.
Lambs are so much fun!!
