Day by day, hour by hour, minute by minute…there are more lambs!
Brett and Orlando are working overtime just keeping track of which lamb goes with which ewe and who is about to lamb who can wait until next week. Over 200 have already been born!
At this time of year especially, the title ‘Farmer’ means the following: vet, carpenter, weatherman, mechanic, electrician and soil/grass specialist. Renaissance man (or woman)! The ewes appreciate all the attention…
They just love these sunny, cool days. It couldn’t be better for lambing. Not too hot and not too chilly.
We’ll update the lamb count as they continue to be born. We’re more than halfway there!
Keep an eye out for the herd – and Bea – on Carter Road. Bea has been doing a great job protecting the lambs from coyotes, which have been frequently spotted in neighboring yards. Good girl!
