Not exactly what I was expecting when I got
I had to work at a pottery sale today, so
I stopped in at 2:30 on my way to check up on
Bella. She was not in labour - and was
quite contendedly relaxing in her stall.
So - on my way I went.
I got home at 8 pm tonight to this little surprise.
A lovely little yuglet socket EWE lamb.
She's not quite what I expected - since Bella is
a boring old yuglet (not my words) - and
Bernard is a black ram with a white krunet.
I was kind of expecting possibly a gray yuglet like her mom.
Oh well - surprises are nice.
By the way - Bella did a lovely job and presented me
with not one - but 2 lovely little EWE lambs.
This is more like what I expected.
What is it with all these kissing lambs!!
Anyway - the count stands at:
2 ewes - 2 rams.
2 down - 3 more to go.
We aren't expecting more lambs until around the 15th of June - so we have a little break in the action now.
And while we wait - I'll leave you with a picture
of my absolute favourite chicken.
This is "chuckie" - she's a silver laced cochin.
And she's mad at me - cause I just took her off
the nest - hence the major fluffy look.
Now - does that look fierce to you?
