The lambing has been in a slump these past three days, but I know it won't last for long. We're expecting a change in the weather, and that usually means the babies come in a wave when that happens. I don't know why. Maybe it's a coincidence, or maybe it is the weather. Today we had a good number of babies born, and we have one bum lamb. She was a twin. The mama ewe loved one, but not the other, so I'm her mama now. She's a good lamb and took to the bottle right away. There's a chance we might find her a new mama yet. We'll see.
OnlyDaughter is waiting on her baby which is due March 5th. She's feeling very heavy-with-child just now. We're waiting for the phone call that tells us it's time to pick up the children when Mama goes into labor. There's a family contest, guessing what sex the baby will be and on what day he/she will be born. I guessed February 28th, boy. Hubby thought it would be ok if the baby was born on his birthday, but we're running out of time for that at 10:00 pm just now. It would have to come fast!
Hoping all is well with you. Thank you for stopping by.
