Countdown to Lambing 2012!
We are anxiously awaiting the arrival of the first lambs of 2012!
The first lambs are scheduled to arrive starting tomorrow, the 17th. We have several ewes that should lamb over the next few days so it looks like it will be a busy weekend for us.
No matter how many years we have had lambs born, it just doesn't get old. We get just as excited to see them every year.
This year we are confronted with a new problem - a coyote has been seen walking in the field next to our property and we are very concerned to keep all of the sheep protected. Unfortunately it isn't safe for us to let them out of the barn at this time so they are unable to walk around as much as they'd like.
