2013 lambing is only 8 weeks away.
Last year our sheep lambed in February
but it was so cold. We decided lambs being born on green grass would be better ~ for them and us.
As we look forward to the lambing season, I thought it might be fun to look back and see how last year's lambs have grown up.
Daffodil was the first animal born on our farm.
She's grown into a really nice four horn ewe.
Daylily, her twin, looks like a b-i-g girl but she's full of fleece.
Hawthorn has grown quite a set of horns.
Pistache is a real character but he's lacking a good fleece.
Little Periwinkle just came back to the farm last week. Boy, has she grown up! She was the smallest lamb and now she is the biggest. I've also found it interesting that her horns look the same as her mother's even breaking off the same one.
Last, but never least, Zinnia, always the first one to the fence when we go out there.
It really has been a learning experience to have lambs and watch them grow over the last year. We feel better prepared to make wise decisions about the lambs that are to come.
Can't wait for the cuddly little things to hit the ground!
April 1st is the first due date...
Know that the Lord, He is God!
It is He who made us, and we are His;
we are His people, and the sheep of His pasture.
