And So It Goes


And we find ourselves sitting on the couch in front of the fireplace at the end of November with a tiny three pound bottle lamb...

WOW! 3 lbs. is small for a Shetland lamb...what's this one's story? Best of luck - that lamb landed in the perfect spot!

Even smaller if you're a Dorset cross!

Mary said...

How wondrous! Such a small lamb. Good luck to you and to him(her?) :) I feel the love when i look at this pic!

Awe, what happened? Why so wee?

Shirley said...

Please call her Noelle! You are giving her the gift of life for Christmas.

Lori Skoog said...

Oh happy day...sweet baby. Can't wait to read about her story and see more pictures. This shot says a lot. Rest when you can Sara.

I think Peanut would be a good name for a ram or ewe lamb. Too cold for the cot in the barn like with Blossom, so in a nice toasty house is good. I have raised several lambs and goats in the bath tub for a few weeks. Good luck, we know you have had lots of experience.

Aaaaawwwwwww!!!! So cute! Good luck!

A little one in the house for Christmas! How wonderful! Exhausting, crazy, but wonderful. Can't wait to hear how she came to win the Lamb Powerball. I vote for Noelle also.

Alice said...

All you'll want for Christmas is a full nights sleep..... in heavenly peace. Looks like you got your present a little early. Precious photo of your first night together. Enjoy ;-)

Sheepmom said...

A great Christmas present - for both you and the little lambie. She will do fine in your care, tho you may be a sleepless mess for a couple of days ;-) Can't wait to hear the full story of how she came to be with you.

Diane Cayton-Hakey said...

What a gorgeous and tiny creature. Hope she does well in the coming weeks.

Alice said...

I think Holly is a nice name :-)

Sarah said...

looking forward to the story, the naming, the adventures. That's TINY! Wow!

I know the spirit of Equinox Farm which buoyed up Rennie surrounds and nurtures this little one. Sending "Eat lots and grow strong!" vibes!

June said...

There couldn't be a luckier lamb in the world!

Two comments...
A. Further proof that the horrific and unbearable pain of losing our animals does not extinguish or overide the desire in our hearts to love more animals.
B. Gloria. So that when she's driving you crazy running around in the garden this spring you can yell "GLORIA IN EXCELCIS DEO, YOU GET YOUR HINDQUARTERS OVER HERE RIGHT THIS MINUTE!!!"

Lori Skoog said...

Lots of ideas for names..."Sweet Pea?"

Marcy said...

How beautiful and sweet!

Tombstone Livestock said...

She really doesn't look that small in the picture here, but I checked your twitter pictures and love the one where "she found the sheep" there she looks to tiny with little toothpick legs poking out under her coat. Bet she is wondering if one of those sheep is her mother ..... since she came home in your car did she come from the same farm as Blossom? Keep us posted on progress.

Jody said...

AWWWWWWWW :-)

Maureen said...

Oh how precious! I can't think of a better Christmas present.

Can't wait to see more photos!

Benita said...

Tiny is right, but what a cutie! I see some sleepless nights feeding the wee one, but when they grow up like Lila and Blossom, it's worth it all. Right?

Spinners End Farm said...

Holy smokes...I was feeling rather sorry or myself after committing to take in five ducks in the middle of winter after a neighbor suddenly died..but you have your work cut out for you! :) and you are up for it.

Far Side of Fifty said...

Aww..pretty cute..have fun being the Mama!! A perfect name will come to you..:)

La trib├╣ della valle dei cavalli said...

No name till 10 days...I know you will take good care of this tiny girl and everything will be fine soon. Hope she will be kind with you and give you some moment for sleep.
She is lovely.
We wish you a happy life little girl!

Thirteen Sheep (Or More) said...

Ack! I just looked at the twitter photos. She is just way too cute! You have a good "lamb kitchen".
Hope you are getting a nap too!

Jenny said...

She is beautiful. And so tiny!

bj of LaColline said...

I love her little footsies. They'll be carrying her into trouble soon enough.
The kitchen snapshot really shows what a wee one she is. Blessings sent your way.

Eleanor P said...

What fun (and Thom is muttering "better you than my wife"! She's adorable! And just so you know, Tinkerbell (2 1/4 lbs) grew up just fine and regular sized (for a dorper). love to all

Terry said...

Oh my goodness! Best of luck to this tiny girl.
