When I came out for the evening feeding, she was lying down and getting up, and lying down and getting up, sitting down like a dog, kicking at her stomach with a back hoof, etc. and she wouldn't eat.
Yes, we had a dusting once before, but this is the first real decent snow for the lambs. They didn't quite know what to think, but then they went heels-up! We got about 5 inches on New Year's Day with some drifts approaching a foot.
We've decorated with sheep this year... Merry Christmas!
Just some early morning ear-nibbling...
They're quite jurassic in size and have set some wee baby gourds already. How did they accomplish this you ask? With the help of bumblebees.
We've been getting lots of rain, which is a good thing because I'm a grass farmer; sheep gotta eat. Makes for long days when you're a chicken though. The front deck is the new hangout and I don't have the heart to chase them off like I normally do.
2020 is the year of the black ewe-lambs! We've been waiting and wanting black lambs, always wondering if the next lamb would be that elusive black lamb!
