Beaverdam Creek Farm Lambs

April 11, 2012

Springtime is lambing season at Beaverdam Creek Farm!

This little girl was born about an hour before I arrived with my friend, P.

I haven’t petted a lamb in…forever! I was so excited when Trish allowed us to come see their new lambs.
Safe behind a movable, solar-powered electric fence, the sheep graze all day. At night, Hoss the Great Pyrenees is on patrol to keep the coyotes at bay.

This is Big Ears, the larger of the twins.

There remains one ewe who has yet to deliver & poor thing, she looks so uncomfortable. I bet she’s having twins, too!

The twins are both males, so they will not remain for breeding.

These little critters are calm, gentle & don’t mind being snuggled. When the little black lamb cried “baa” P & I laughed – it was just so cute. Her mama didn’t think it was funny! She wanted her lamb back! So we handed her back over to Tricia Ann who reunited her with the ewe. Baby started nursing immediately, her tail twitching in delight.

      Sarie,
      Stop by anytime and you can hold one, too! But you better come quickly. They’re growing so fast that they’ll soon be too big to hold!
