The lambs are arriving.
Newborn lambs aren't fluffy at all. They are cute, but they are leggy and have saggy skin with a little bit of tight wool. Not much like the picture storybooks.....yet.
"I am the good shepherd; and I know My own, and My own know Me..." ~John 10:14 I am always reminded of this verse when I see pictures like this. S. is our good shepherd and his sheep sure do know him. They're licking and nibbling him as he lets them back into the shed for the night. (Notice how the shepherd doesn't mind if his sheep have boogers hanging out of their noses or if they have wrinkled noses or dirt in their eyes. He loves them.)
It's cold again. Just 4 degrees tonight. We've gotten a new 5 inches of snow after the last foot melted down. Tonight and tomorrow we're expecting more. The lambs and their mothers will be staying in the sheds until it gets warmer.
