Lambs and a Snowstorm
We are in the midst of a snowstorm. So, of course the ewes are going to lamb. There was a new ewe lamb, that greeted us this morning, when we did a barn check.
Snowstorms are always a good time to have lambs (eye roll). That is how this winter lambing works! The #1 reason we lamb in the spring. If it wasn't for the fact that the girls are involved in the 4-H sheep project, we wouldn't have any lambs in the winter.
On the bright side, we have not had the cold winter temperatures, that we had last winter.
The ewes and lambs are tucked away in the barn, so all is well.
Only one more ewe to go...
Just a couple of days ago, Toulouse and I were enjoying 60 degrees and sunshine. That is Michigan weather for ya.
