Aaaaaaaaaaah April

Some memories are just so wonderful that just recalling them makes my whole day and April brings lambing to my mind...  I blogged about my sheep over and over as they were the most loving and gentle animals and brought me great joy.  Nothing was more exciting than to go out to the lambing pens on a chilly April morning and find a newly born lamb....except finding TWO new babies as in this pair of twins that my beautiful Topaz produced... The one on the left is taking her first wobbly steps but managed to find that nipple

For a couple weeks before Topaz was sooooooooo huge and miserable and just couldn't get comfortable standing or laying down.  She loved it when I massaged her swollen belly and would lay her head in my lap.  Here she is longingly looking a Ruby's lamb and wishing her ordeal was all over.

If you look very closely just at the back of the lamb you will notice a tuft of wool caught on the fence post.  The sheep would scratch against the posts and fences and leave little tufts of wool everywhere.  When we would clean  out the birdhouses in the fall   nests would be lined with these tufts of wool..

I can't believe that it has been eight years since I did this post.  This photo is on my desk right by my computer where I see it everyday,  Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah April!!!!

Your sheep and lambs are so adorable. We had pigs on our farm for years ... alas, they became too much work for us after I shattered my ankle back in 2003. They had such quirky personalities and I often think of them.

Baby animals are the best! I grew up on a farm so there was always little pigs, calves and chickens for me to play with. We never had any sheep though, although I really wished we did.
