Now we know it's spring

We went to the farm for sheep herding yesterday. And found a very pleasant surprise. Lots of lambs had been born this past week, but especially on Friday. Leah said that the norm this year is twins and triplets. No single births. There was one ewe who gave birth to four, but one didn't survive. Very unusual.

My dogs were in the car while I was by the barn looking at the lambs. We don't want to scare the babies. And the llama probably would have not appreciated the dogs anyway. He is there to protect the herd.

This is my third spring of seeing the lambs, and it never gets old. They are born so perfect, eyes open, hooves ready to run. And they all follow mom around to get a quick drink. I am fortunate to have seen this.
