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...

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  11. 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.

  21. 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!!!"

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

  23. How beautiful and sweet!

  24. 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.

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

    Can't wait to see more photos!

  26. 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?

  27. 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.

  29. 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!

    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.

I am so sorry that even though I have word verification set to NO, it's still showing up for some readers :-(. I apologize for the inconvenience and hope you'll still keep in touch. I really, really enjoy your comments.
