We have had a very busy spring on the farm. Two lambs arrived while my wife was in California, helping our youngest daughter pack up at the end of the semester. Lucky for me all went well with the birth of the lambs, and I just got a pleasant surprise when I walked up to the barn. The mom gave birth to a ram and a ewe lamb, and they both are healthy. This time of year, our herd expands to fill all of our pens. We have natural colored Romneys, white Romneys, market lambs which will be sold at the 4H auction, and a few visitors that belong to family members. It is a full house.
Chloe and Gus have cemented an odd relationship where he is obsessed with her, and she allows him to follow her as long as he stays one paw swipe away. He is happy to oblige.
