Our Farmstead Scene | New Animals

We’ve been talking and planning for a while about raising some lambs.  Our adventure into sheep started on the weekend with 6 ewes and their adorable lambs, of which 8 are twins.  I was bursting with excitement as we worked with the couple we love dearly and are in their 80’s to get our animals ready to bring home.  Sorting the lambs, docking tails and tagging them.  We were sure glad to have our parents there to help us out too!

We are thoroughly enjoying taking care of and spending time this week with these gentle-natured animals and watching the playful lambs.  Yesterday morning started off with finding our bottle-fed orphan lamb no longer alive.  Feeling really sad and brokenhearted, I took my camera out to the sheep pen and photographed our colorful flock.  The little lambs are so curious and love to climb, going right into the hay feeder and a couple of them jump around like they are part goat.  They are neat and intelligent animals.  I am loving to walk outside and hear a ewe or lamb bleating from the barn.

We also brought home laying hens and a rooster so it was a mad panic last week getting our chicken coop somewhat ready and we have more work to do yet.  They seem happy in their new home and it’s wonderful going out to collect fresh eggs!
