Lambing has begun

The count so far: 8 ram lambs, 1 ewe lamb. White, black and BROWN! Our first brown lamb, Theodore is living in the house -- much to the annoyance of our cats.

It was a whopping 27 degrees the morning of his birth. Hypothermia nearly did the little fellow in. I gave him a warm water bath and popped him in a laundry basket with a heating pad. By the end of the day he was ready for the playpen.

another fleece ready

I'm getting faster! I hand sheared Frosty, the big ram in an hour. 7 pounds of fleece - after skirting!
8 more sheep to go ......

Fleeces are ready

It's glorious outside. The sheep, though, they're miserable. Out came the shears. The first batch of fleeces are ready and can be found at
I expect to shear the rest in the next week.
Lambs will arrive in 6 weeks!

Fidget and Peyton are here! Fidget is a brown Alpine, Peyton is a black Lamancha. They've settled in well and we're expecting kids in May.

My camera is having issues so I lost the better pictures I took. I'll try again but in the meantime - here are the new girls.

My thanks to Bonnie Peck and her daughters for raising these healthy, friendly goats.
