Hey, there!!!

Spring is here and so the new lambs, as you can see from my previous posts... The one who was born the latest, Patrick, needs to be nurtured also. His mom is a wonderful mom, but I think there is something wrong with him. He seems to have a tiny hernia right next to his belly button. BTW, he lost the piece of umbilical cord way too soon. He tries to suckle from his momma, but it's as if he didn't know how. And he's already a week old!! Today, his momma has "adopted" the other two babies I posted about, and has ignored this one...I guess I'll have to bring him inside the house and keep him until he gets bigger...poor Patrick!

I have also been uploading some pictures to Picasa, please feel free to hop over & take a look at them. 8-)
Gotta go now check on baby Patrick. Rosita & Baby Huey are doing fine, as is Patricia. 

Hug someone today!!!!

Brand new babies...8-)

Last month one of our ewes gave birth to what my hubby & I consider to be a preemie lamb. Yup, a preemie!! She was born on Feb. 7. Usually, all our moms give birth by the end of February. This little one was so tiny, it couldn't reach up to suckle. Poor thing!!!! I immediately declared, "my sheep gave birth to a chihuahua!!" She was the size of a 20 oz. bottle of water....hehe

So I have been nurturing the microscopic sheep, named her Rosita, and she is thriving! So cute! 

Like the headband I made for her?

After that, our oldest mom gave birth to a humongous lamb!!! Quite a contrast! Look at the size of those legs!! Huge!She is not being herself, she has diarrhea, and is not eating very well, though, and I am afraid I'll end up nurturing this one as well...

I'll let you know some more as time goes by.
Have a fun day!
