As the year turns, the ewes are brought to the barn and bedded down for a a couple months of frenzied lambing.
Well, that time is now and we currently have about 28 lambs running amok (soon to be close to 200!).
And I mean literally running – and jumping and prancing and making a whole lot of noise.
And just when a ewe turns her head…
The ewes are put into the birthing pen for a couple of days to give birth and bond with their babies.
And then they join the herd out in the common area of the barn for a little independence.
The lambs grow so fast! Pretty soon, they strike out on their own.
But for the next several months, their mothers are just a few steps away.
