We hope you have had an appropriate mix of revelry and relaxation so far this holiday, however you spend your days – whether in celebration, contemplation or just vacation.
We woke up to a new lamb in the barn on Christmas morning, and twins born just after we returned from Christmas feasting in Seabright later that day.
This all serves to legitimize our decision to not go anywhere overnight and just do day trips to see the various relatives.
I think that will be it for a while – no more noticeable udders. It may be that we’ve managed to stretch our lambing period over several months! And we still don’t have any evidence that our new ram has done any work…good thing we still have Lukey.
We’re heading out now to put the moms and babes in together for company. Of course, all the other ewes get jealous when they see the nice hay and extra grain that Pepper and Ginger are having. I don’t think they’ve learned to associate it with popping out a lamb or two, yet, though.
I’m continuing to have troubles posting (technical and psychological), but if I get up enough momentum, I’ll have to fill you in on the rest of the holiday happenings (including Rupert playing the part of shepherd in the local live Nativity…).
Happy New Year, all. ~ hj
