Out with the Old, In with the New

Today is a much nicer day with lots of sunshine and warmth.  Two more ewes lambed early this morning, Serenity and Boudicca.  Both had twins, Serenity’s sired by Tristan; and Boudicca’s sired by Raider.  I quickly cleaned out the stall the older lambs were in and moved the two new moms in with their lambs. 

The new mama’s are happy with fresh hay and water, while the lambs enjoy the warm dry straw.

Meanwhile outside isn’t as peaceful of a setting.  The “older” lambs are outside terrorizing the world and discovering all types of new things while their mama’s eat breakfast.

They zoomed every which way they could — especially these three; Fleur, Aster and Columbine.  Little Marigold is a “princess” according to her mama so she’s not allowed to get involved in too much silliness.  And Chamomile, well, she’s not exactly allowed to join in much either but not due to her mama —

More like Annie can’t seem to let her go!  Chamomile certainly takes after her name, she is calm and loves to snuggle.  Just a little sleepy time tea in lamb form.

Finally Chamomile was let loose and she got to enjoy some romping with her sister, Columbine.  I don’t know what it is about feed pans, but lambs are instantly attracted to them!
