We've been a little busy around here with babies.
Our ewes have started popping.
Our first set came last Thursday night with our oldest ewe, Lambchop.
She had a set of triplets.
It's called the CRAZY ewe.
You see, we have 12 ewes that are pregnant. Lambchop had triplets...the most she's ever had.
Another pregnant ewe got it in her head for some reason that the babies were hers, so she started licking them and calling to them, and got the babies and Lambchop all confused.
Lambchop, started to reject the babies...so that's where the kids and I stepped in.
Brent was gone, so we went and got the lambs, and started bottle feeding them.
Yep, 4 times a day.
It's like having another child again...except it's 3 all at once!
It's fun for awhile, and then it becomes alot.
We do it so they get stronger, and until they can eat grass on their own. Then we'll move them back with the other lambs we have.
Just look at them, aren't they adorable. This is curly (he's got crazy curly hair on his neck and back.)
crazy legs, because whenever you're holding him to feed him, or whenever he's outside, he runs sideways, jumps around like a deer, or is constantly moving his legs while he's in your arms.
And this is Pumpkin. Because he's adorable, and stares you right in the eyes all the time .
This is Kendall. I don't know who is cuter...her or the lamb. I mean really.
This is my cousin Jamie and her daughter Nora. I think Jamie had more fun with the babies than Nora did.
