This is the time of year when we get lots of phone calls from friends wanting to pop by for a visit. Of course! After all, we have a barn-full of babies!
Clover and Violet.
Jupiter and Venus.
Pickle and Jewel.
Quinoa and Millet.
Nine lambs – four boys and five girls. Seven white, one black, and one, well, Holstein.
Pickle, the dairy cow look-alike, is rather hard to explain. Honestly, this little guy has the wildest markings we have ever seen! A white Merino father, white Corriedale mother, black and white polka-dot lamb. Um… I'm not sure what happened there, but I love it.
He hard not to fall in love with, silly guy.
And now the fun begins! Later this week we'll open up some fresh green pastures, and set these babies (and their mamas) out to romp, run, and enjoy the lushness of spring. I can hardly wait.
