The Winners...Besides Maisie ;-)

From 76 total comments (main blog, Mia sized blog and emails), Maisie used Random.org to pick four winners.

Fun!  Send me your address and we'll get your goat milk soap right out :-D.



Maisie's jumping for joy.  Or maybe just showing off ;-).  

She now loves to go to the barn and is happy tootling around up there for quite awhile, even when it's cold.  Gone are the days of sore feet and legs and crying to go back to the house.  Now if she just had a safe and fun buddy to hang with, she'd be happy snuggling down in the straw, listening to the sheep tell stories at night rather than sitting on the couch watching TV.


A lavender lamb.


Under Hank's watchful eye.  I love this sweet picture.


If you look really close...teefers :-D.


We've been making some supervised visits with the big kids.  Maisie's confident.  Sometimes to a fault.  But she's smart, too.  She knows she can steal food from the old sheep.  That B. Willard is a bit of a punk, but for the most part is okay.  That Lila can be nice, but Keebler and Rebecca Boone have both dealt some mean, hard knocks and should be avoided at All Costs! 

We all sure enjoyed the sunshine this afternoon.

What a big girl she is!!! Love your posts.

What a cute full tummy in that "lavender lamb" picture!

Hank, you are so good!

Tombstone Livestock said...

wow Sara, she is really filling out, nice and round, not boney looking at all. Love the Jumping for Joy picture and also sweet pic with Hank, hope those show up in next years Maisie calendar.

The Dancing Donkey said...

She sure is turning into quite the chunky monkey and her legs look to have straightened right out. Well done, she is one lucky lambie!

Terry said...

The picture with Hank brought tears to the eye - so sweet. She's a doll. I'm so glad she's thriving at last.

Sheepmom said...

She's sooo big compared to where she started, the you see her next to Hank and realize she's still just a widdle wamb. What a great job you're doing with her. So good to hear that she's happy visiting the barn. Of course, it's still going to be a big transition...you might have to move a cot AND a TV into the lamb camp.

Tree Hugger - Suzan said...

She has grown so fast!! As this winter passes --- you'll always remember this as Maisie's Winter!! She's just way too cute for her own good :-}}

Alice said...

Incredible capture of a front facing leaping lamb!
I wondered, does "lavender Lamb" come because she is in front of the lavender garden or because that's a category of lamb family she fits into?
Once you can figure out how to get episodes of Downton Abbey into the barn, she may well acclimatize to lamb camp ( with pillows and quilts of course)

Far Side of Fifty said...

Hope a buddy comes forward soon..so glad to hear the visits are going as good as can be expected. Love the photo of Maisie and Hank..what a treasure he is! Congratulations to all your winners! :)

Roses, Lace and Brocante said...

That Maisie is so gorgeous and full of mischief!!!
I've just read through your last few posts - you tell such a wonderful story, I'm sure I detect a children's book coming!


Congrats to the lucky winners!!!

Maisie is growing up to become a big, full bellyed, bouncing teenager! She is doing sooo well, you must be sooo proud!! :-)
Hope she finds a buddy soon!

Love, Ineke

small farm girl said...

Wow! She has plumped right up! Goat milk, it does the body good. :)

Dicky Bird said...

Hank is a good dog! I love it when lambs jump like that, twisting and kicking! Blessings from Wisconsin.

Hank is so awesome, love how he takes such good care of the flock.
Glad to see Maisie thriving.
Congrats to the winners!

La tribù della valle dei cavalli said...

I'm so happy to see Maisy's getting "fluffy"! She is adorable!! And I like she is indipendent too! I read her progress and your story everyday, even if sometimes I have no time to leave a comment...many hugs to Maisie!!

Nina said...

It's good to see Maisie looking so lively, active and happy. She sure is growing now.

Shirley said...

Love the photo with Hank- such a good dog!
Nice to see how green it is there, our snow is rapidly melting and the green lawn is showing again- and Rio is quite happy that I didn't do that one last mowing last fall.
What about Blossom for a buddy? Or would that be just too much youthful exuberance?

Stephen Andrew said...

I love the photo of she and Hank!! He is such a beauty. And she is soo sweet.

LannieK said...

Sara, you should be so proud. She is looking good! Love the jumping for joy shot ~ really shows how far she's come. She looks happy & healthy. Perhaps a new little lamb for a friend?

Lori Skoog said...

Maisie looks terrific, and so does your weather! I'm jealous.

I need orange said...

How wonderful, to see her looking so healthy and happy!

"Thank you!" to the lovely goats, for helping Maisie!

Mary Ann said...

Congratulations to your winners, but the REAL winner is Maisie, and it's so good to see her looking grand!

Deb W said...

DFW are my initials, and I started to get excited until I realized that is not the name I use on my blog, and so it wasn't me! Oh well, congratulations to my DFW 'sister.' We all love the lambies!!

Mary said...

Yay! Maisie is SO awesome, and of course adorable. I'm glad she's doing so well. And Hank is such a wonderful 'big brother'!

farmlady said...

She's learning the ropes and has Hank to back her up.
Maisie, the little sweetheart, is doing well.

Ed said...

Such a cutie, excellent pics..:-))

cyndy said...

Yay! Thank you Maisie!!

Lovely sunshiney photos! Would enjoy that, myself! Winter storm Nemo just dumped a bunch of snow on us!

Terry and Linda said...

That Hank...he sure knows and understands his roll in life. Love how good Maisie is looking! Yippee!
