Our First Lamb of 2007!
Jemma delivered our first lamb of the season today. It's a ewe lamb, black with small white spots oh her head just like her mom. Name still to be decided.
The timing was a little earlier than I had planned. We're in the midst of a cold snap and I haven't got my good tight fencing up yet. Mom and baby are inside a calf hut tonight with a wire panel tied across the front. Another ewe, Lottie, wants to steal this baby so bad! She calls to the lamb and the lamb calls back to her. But the lamb is nursing and her mom has claimed her too. I'll be so glad when the weather warms up and Lottie has a lamb of her own.
