Wait For It...

"Is that lady bothering you?"

"No, not really."

"What are you looking at?"

"You're looking at my mouth?"

"You mean..."


You might have the cutest teefers ever!

It Takes A Village...Or A Sister

We've been calling this small mixing pen the "cat corner" (there's a litter of kittens behind that big fan ;-), but I also called this the "pen of confusion" the other day.  I was filling water buckets and noticed things were a little crazy and a couple lambs in this pen were probably not nursing off the correct moms.  I watched for a minute and sure enough they were all swapped around.  

It's not normal for ewes to let other ewes lambs nurse and two of the lambs are a couple days older than the other two so I was concerned the smaller ones were not getting enough to eat.  I pulled the lambing book to check ear tags so I could figure out who was supposed to be where and guess what!

The two moms are sisters :-). 

It's definitely not an ideal situation, but they seem to be making it work.  These are their first lambs so I'm sure they are happy to have each other's company and support and between the two of them, they've got this motherhood thing :-D.

Sweet Sisters

Those sweet sisters from the other day.

Could they be any cuter?

I couldn't pick a favorite, but I did make one into a puzzle :-).

The Babysitter

I'm going to keep you in suspense for the even cuter pictures of the sisters from yesterday.  Sorry about that!  Today is National Farm Animal Day so I want to give some props to a hard working "farm animal" I found babysitting half the lambs in the nursery pen this afternoon.

I posted a quick video from Final Frontier Farm at the time and one of the stars of the show was this sweet napping lambie.  I love when they fall asleep and their heads roll back and back and back and just before they hit the ground they jerk back up...and a kid sleeping through math class ;-).

The two lambs in this picture are her lambs.  In the video you can see all the other lambs curled up around her.  She's apparently the neighborhood favorite :-).

You Might Think This Is A Cute Picture

And for sure it is...but believe it or not, it's not the cutest picture I took of these two lambs :-).

Nestled In A Nest

Wednesday was the coldest lambing day I've experienced.  Well, maybe not the coldest, but with the wind factored in, it sure felt like it.  Normally I have to drag myself away from the lambing barn.  I was actually watching the clock, counting down the hours until I could clock out.  

This little lamb found the perfect spot to take a nap, nestled deep in a straw nest.  He's a new puzzle for you if you are looking for something to do on a snowy (yes, in April ?!?) Saturday.  Enjoy!  The puzzle, not the snow :-o.

Moms Are Cute, Too!

I just love this chubby cheeked, smiley ewe :-).

But what you may have missed in the first picture is she has her feet crossed :-D.

Yet Another...

...funny Maisie story.

The other day I walked out of the Wool House and saw Maisie and Clover Belly standing near the gate to the front field.  Clover Belly was closest to the gate and between me and Maisie and I guess Maisie didn't see me.

As I got a little closer I said in my special talking to Maisie voice, "Mayzee.  MAYzee!"  Maisie turned to Clover Belly with an incredulous look on her face and I feel completely confident she clearly thought Clover Belly had just said her name.

You gotta love her :-).

Favorite Family

That's Biscuit in the background.  He's never been a snuggler, even when he was a tiny baby living in the kitchen.  He slept near me, but seldom snuggled up  with me.  He likes to sleep near them, but not with them.  Muffin, on the other hand, has always been a snuggler.  Even at almost a year old, her mom is still her favorite pillow.

And It's Back

We got several inches of snow again last night which reminded me that I'd forgotten to share some cute Tilly pictures I'd taken for the "camping" post during the Iknitarod.

I'd taken a whole series of pictures of Tilly digging a snow bed...

...but a corgi digging in deep (for a corgi ;-) snow...the pictures all look pretty much the same ;-).

And then, when she lays's kind of hard to tell that she actually has ;-D.

But it's pretty hard to top a corgi with a snow ball on her nose ;-).
