Ewe Expecting

Today was one of those beautiful winter wonderland kind of days. Everything is covered in  white. I went out to check on the ladies and noticed they are starting to look a little  round.  We should start seeing lambs in about 7-8 weeks


Mabel


This  aged ewe is one of our first Border Leicesters and  happens to be one of my favorites.
She decided to pose for me while I was taking a few snapshots.

My girls are so anxious for the babies to come. They have been looking at all of the lamb pictures on the blogs that I have been following.  A girlfriend of theirs has some lambs at their place.  I keep telling them we have a while to go yet. 

Patience....

    1. Thank you Teri!
      I love the lambs too. Thankfully I have two younger girls that can't wait for the lambs and kids to make thier appearance so they can kick into shepherdess mode. They are a big help during a busy time.
      We are hoping for a smooth lambing season and wish the same for you!

  2. I love that picture of Mabel! There is something so poetic about the image of sheep standing out in winter snow; the scriptures refer to both sheep's wool and snow as metaphors for being cleansed and pure. Also, I get the feeling spring will be here before we know it :)

  3. She looks just like the ewe I lost last summer. I miss her. I hope to have a few more like her soon, as all my sheep are expecting too. I will have lots of sheep and lamb pictures on my blog if I can get it to work right. Anyway, I have 4 about ready to lamb any time now. Can hardly wait! I've been having goats kidding the past few weeks. Love those babies!

    1. I bet all her babies are beautiful. I am hoping for a few. My ram I'm using for the younger finn ewes is the black Finn ram. So I hope I get a few black ewes to keep. I hope people aren't getting tired of all the kid pics. But I love taking pictures of them! I just made a mountain goat album on FB.
