"And hello to you too!"
"Oh my goodness. Who do you belong to?"
This was the conversation between me and the lambs at 3:00 this morning.
During our middle of the night check,
we discovered one lamb in the yard and another in the shed but with different ewes. One ewe, Ralene, obviously just had a lamb and the other, Twinkle, (how shall I say it?) was very clean and did not appear in labor.
We separated them and then decided that Twinkle had not had a lamb. So we thought she was babysitting, took him away from her and put him with Ralene. Then we went back to bed and got up to check on everyone an hour later. Then Twinkle had another lamb!
Who goes with whom?
We weren't sure at first but have it all figured out now. It's Twinkle's ram for sure. (She delivered two sacks)
The sheep are all happy now
and the shepherds are much less confused.
|St. Jude's Ralene x Never Winter Haagen Dazs ram lamb.|
This is Jared's lamb since Ralene is his sheep. He thinks he is pretty special. I think he's right.
|St. Jude's Twinkle x Moose Mountain Hawthorn ewe lamb|
This little girl is cute from the top of her fuzzy head to the white tips on her black hooves.

He was a whopping 9 lbs, 12 oz
My people have been lost sheep. Their shepherds have led them astray, turning them away on the mountains. From the mountain to hill they have gone. They have forgotten their fold.
