The air here at the farm is charged with anticipation… and a little anxiety.  The bulging bellies and swelling udders a sure sign that lambing time is nigh.  Just a little more than a week  and our little lambs will be hitting the ground.  Lambing supplies have been inventoried, reorganized and reordered.  The barn has been cleaned and there’s a little bit or reorganization going on in there too.  It is so much easier to tell what is going on now that they’ve been sheared, and all the ewes look to be in good condition.  So for a few more days, the waiting game continues… we’re just about ready.

  1. Can't wait for Boaz to appear. The girls are doing great. They have adjusted to the 5am, 5pm routine. They holler for their grain now just like the goats.

  2. I am anxiously awaiting the photos of the little lambs! I know you will be busy…but I am sure you will record the events for those of us not lucky enough to be there!

  3. As a city girl for about 30 years that moved to the country side some 13 years ago, I really enjoy your posts that make me discover life in your farm.
    Looking forward to discovering the little lambs.
