More Snow – and lambing has begun

What a winter this has been!  We have had consistent storms since December and we have not had much true melt off.  The animals have come through the weather well and who would have thought that we would have started lambing in the snow?!?

On February 5th, 2017 one of our best ewe’s: Betty, delivered a large and vigorous black ewe lamb!  We had to improvise a lambing ‘jug’ (pen), but they are both doing well.  

We have another ewe about ready to join her  – mostly likely with twins!  I guess while Spring might still be 6 weeks away, new life has started here!
