Baby Kitties were born today. One of the many wonderful perks of growing up on a farm!
Yesterday we experienced a spring blizzard here in North Dakota. We had about 8 inches of new snow. We were lucky as some just West of received up to 23 inches. It is melting today, but I am told we are to expect more snow on Wednesday. We had one new baby during the blizzard, she has a great mommy and was well cared for. The rest of the sheep have been hanging out in the barn with occasional trips out to the bale to eat.
A few pictures of my adorable lambs.
Another cold day for lambing, but Girbius and Griffle are doing fine. They are taking the cold well.
Meet Pattertwig! He is a single Romney Ram lamb. Frisky and adorable! We are hoping it warms up soon, it has been miserable working with the sheep in the freezing cold temps.
Meet “Diggles” our first lamb of 2013. He was born yesterday afternoon. Thankfully it was warmer then. Today he is snuggling under the heat lamp in the barn. Diggles is Twizzler’s first lamb and she is proving to be an excellent mommy!
The sheep have been getting whiny about the grass supply in their current pasture. They were treated to a new pasture today that is green with vegetation for them to enjoy. The only problem being it is not fenced for sheep, just cows, so they will have to behave and respect the cow fence!! The other two sheep pastures are currently trying to replenish what the sheep have eaten and not too quickly either. Some more rain would sure help speed up the process. Meanwhile the sheep will have to behave until the grass starts to grow in their own pastures.
