puppies, then a baby goat, then we rescued two other puppies, and THEN Hazel had her kids! This week, we also got some more little tiny surprises. On Thursday, my dad woke up to Annie (one of the livestock guardian dogs) barking like crazy.
He went to the barn to see what's up, and Beady had given birth to our first little lamb born here. He has a spotted face and spotted legs, but the rest of him is white. It just had to be a ram, of course.
Then, this morning, my dad woke up to the same exact thing! He went down to the barn, and Rosie had lambed a little ramlamb. He was only about 30 minutes old, maybe less when my dad found the lamb. He texted my mom, and she woke us up saying, "Rosie had a baby, it's a girl!". So I ran out there all excited that it was a girl, and of course, it was a boy. My dad had missed his "boy parts" because it was so dark
in the barn. *sigh*
Rosie was not letting him nurse, for some odd reason, so that means we have to bottle
feed the lamb, although we keep trying to force Rosie to accept him, halter tying her and letting the lamb nurse. He will be sold once he is 2 months old, but for right now he is in the house.
That also means we have a sheep that needs to be milked, and she does NOT like anyone touching her udder, so this will be super fun. :)
We just have one more ewe due this month and we will be done! Hopefully she has a girl. Keep your fingers crossed!!!
