Finally, another ewe lamb
I got back from taking the dogs for their morning walk and saw three sheep down in the woods so I went to check on them. They all came out and headed back toward the main flock, but I was rather suspicious of Beauty. Sure enough, when I checked about an hour later, Beauty was at the back of the pasture with a little lamb. I put the lamb in a sling and brought them across the pasture, through the flock (where the aroused great interest among last year's ewe lambs) and up to a jug in the barn. It's awful cold and windy out--I may end up having to put a sweater on this little one. Here are some not so great photos of the newest addition to the flock. Check out her awesome little Persian lamb pelt. She's definitely a keeper!
