Like a walk through the country side living on a small farm is full of daily surprises, sometimes wonderful and amazing, and other times puzzling and sad. I hope you will walk with me as I live out my dream of living on this tiny farm. You will come to know the dogs, cats, Shetland sheep and chickens that make up this farm and what goes into keeping them happy and healthy. Come and join the journey with me.

Gratuitous Lamb Photos

More lamb, or should I say Eve photos, since she is still the newest and onliest lamb born thus far. It will be a few days before anyone else is due, so I'm getting to enjoy this little sprite. She loves to be scratched and loved on. Her mommy tries to tell her to run but she can't, she is too busy melting down from all the lovely scratches. Things are pretty hectic right now, as lambing moves along, and shearing is scheduled for the 29th (and I'm still cleaning out stalls..). Lots of things to get done between now and then! Hope you enjoy the photos!

Little baby of mine, let me tell you about this one that gives good scratches....

She also brings cookies...but sometimes you must earn your cookies...

Bee...boppity bee..I just want to play Mommy!

And then rest on this nice pile of hay that the one who gives scratches left for me!

Chickie: "What do you mean, I'm not the baby anymore???"

Boone: "And you say I'm not the Center of the Universe for the next few weeks? This cannot be true!"

Woot! Is that my own personal lamb? I mean I know I can't herd her or anything but is this my personal lamb??? She's so cute! When she grows up can I like maybe herd her just a little? I mean I never ever herded anything and I'm supposed to be a herding dog and I know I am an honorary sheepdog here, so can I train with my own personal lamb? I mean, I'm so excited I'm biting my foot here!

Dear Eve,
I think you are a very cute little lamb. My scratches person says I am the cutest little goat, but since you are not a goat, it's OK for you to be the cutest little lamb. We both have white spots on our heads. I think we might be related. Distantly. You should always take all the scratches and cookies you can get.

OMG Tammy, she is so darn cute :)
What a beautiful color - will she stay that color?

Can't help feeling sorry for Boone - he looks so rejected - gotta love that face :)

Have a good weekend ~

I'm not sure there is anything cuter than a newborn lamb! ha...I forget how crazy cute they are until lambing season. Thanks everyone! Tosca, she can be your honorary lamb--good luck herding her...you are going to need it! Luna--perhaps distant cousins?? I've been told that goatie babies can even exceed the cuteness of little sheepie babies...Deb--I think she will most likely turn out like her Mom, color wise. Lark is a dark moorit (with sun bleached ends). It's hard to say yet, though w/out other moorit babies to compare to. She is very dark. As for Boone...he is the picture of tragedy right now. When he hears me baby talking the lamb, that is just about the last straw for him. How that face can get any sadder looking...but it does!
