First Lambs!

Last night about 9 o'clock, The Farmer went out to check on the sheep. He found 2 little ram lambs. Their mom is Diamond, beloved sheepy of our daughter.

They are doing well. Diamond is a good mama. We like to see the ewes a bit crabby. A crabby mom is a good mom. It means they are interested, care about their lambs, and will protect them. So if the ewe stomps her feet at you, you know those babies have a fighting chance.

You can probably draw some parallels between sheep moms and human moms here. I will let you ruminate on it yourself. :)


  1. Sooooo cute!!!! I will not, however, touch your comment about grumpy mamas. No sireeeee! :)

  2. Darling photos!! I wanna touch them. :)

    I must be a really good mama and give my kids a fightin' chance. LOL

  3. Wow, that is so reassuring!! Maybe I am a good mom after all!!!

    Love those pics. Can't wait to show them to my kiddos tomorrow.
