So what's our head count now? I've lost track. "X dropped and Y to go..." Congratulations from the subarctic where I feature it's warmer here with calmer winds. And the lowest snowfall on record by more than 10 inches (20+ inches total accumulation). I hope you have a dog bed on the kitchen floor strategically placed for your next nap.
Janice - I've lost count too, but I write everything down....so...10 lambs altogether so far, 3 rams and 7 ewes. We're expecting 36 lambs in total if the scanner guy is accurate, so I have to fit 26 more lambs in the garden. It will be a party for sure! Glad to hear you're not snowed in at least.
You should name them Daenerys, Rhaegar, and Viserys. Obviously the latter two should be headed to ice camp (aka The Land of Always Winter).And you could have Daenerys foster three baby chickens!
I love you Seester for always getting my references. All three destined for ice Camp, but I hope Daenerys survives this season's GoT.
Glad to see the herd increasing. The GoT reference made me smile too.How is Gregor? Has she recovered?Nan
Nan - Gregor is still with us. I coddle her with special foods, vitamin injections, and glucose injections. I also bottle feed her lambs (though they live with her) to take the pressure off her to make milk - a hugely calorific strain. I did have a stillborn lamb the other night though, so you don't win them all.
Oh, so sorry to hear about the stillborn. I'm glad to hear Gregor is still hanging in there. I hope you are ok...the busy season must be exhausting. Nan
