The lambs are getting really big. And even though they are still with their mommas, we are now seperating them at feeding time.
The ewes are much happier with this situation since now they are getting their full portion of alfalfa. We knew the lambs were sharing but we were not sure how large that portion was.
It appears it was quite a lot!
While the ewes eat in peace, the lambs creep into the shed through the creep gate and eat their own alfalfa and sweet feed. They make a racket going in and out and seem to make a game of it.
Their teenage friend, Ziggy, who always want to be with the lambs, wishes she could join them!
When they have had their fill, they creep out...
and off to the races they go!
They run from one side of the pen to the other and around again.
It will be nice to have them out on a pasture in a few weeks. It will be fun to watch them run on green grass!
