I Know It's What They Are Supposed To Do

I tried to type out a full update on how weaning was going, but a. it's late and I'm beat and b. the more I typed the sadder I got.  I miss my little Liddy.  Actually, I miss growing up Liddy, too.  She has truly been an exceptional little lamb.  Okay, I'm going to shut up now and go make one last sneaky barn check and then go to bed.  

I camped out in the barn with her Saturday night and we had a big time.  Last night, around 3:00 a.m., she peed on my sleeping bag :-o.  I bailed.  I'm going to check to make sure she's okay (she will be I'm quite sure, but I feel better checking one. last. time.) and then sleep in the house tonight. By myself.  With no sweet sleepy little/big lamb to cuddle up with.... :'-(




Sweet Baba is doing a great job!

    2. Elaine is absolutely right! And (St Tim permitting ;) ) you can always let her back in the house, or at least on the porch for a visit...

  3. It's so hard to let go of our babies, no matter how many legs they have! At least Liddy isn't going far away to college.

  4. You probably missed her more than she missed you. Good thing you and the sleeping bag are washable...you know just the notion that a lambie peed on you would freak many people out:)

  8. CHEERS, even though you are SAD. However the sleeping bag incident spurred you on :) Her fleece is wonderful but she hasn't yet had a chance to get into exciting stuff...like shotgun shells haha What do the others (Maisie) say?

  9. Every one of your house lambs have been special, and Liddy is no exception.

  10. Aw. Just because something is the way it needs to be doesn't mean it's not got its sad aspects.... Sending hugs.

  14. There was Blossom, and Massie, and now Liddy, I think they handle weaning better than you do Sara. Hang in there lambing season will come again next spring and there will be another little one that needs you as much as you need him or her.

  15. It seems like Liddy's lambhood has gone by so fast -- in the blink of an eye! I think one of the hardest things to do is to let your "child" go out and face the big world without you. . . but in the long run she'll always come home to you, her mom!

  17. Congrats on raising and fledging another lamb!
    I was at an art show and saw a print... I immediately thought of you.
    It's at http://www.kamikin.com Scroll down below the slide show and the blurb about the artist. I think you'll see what I was talking about!
