Sheep update

It has been a tougher than normal first week of lambing season.  We have had a number of lambs that need a bit of assistance.  Nevertheless,  things are progressing.  Right now we have 8 total healthy lambs running around,  1 was stillborn,  1 didnt make it,  and 1 found a new home after being abandoned. 

To help the herd get stronger we have increased the "hotter"  feed. (oats,  alfalfa).  This will provide a bit more energy and help milk production.

The cutest one during lambing season is perhaps rainey the llama.  We call him uncle rainey as he often fills in for the moms when they go eat...  Attentively watching the little ones until mom is back.

Uncle rainey!
