"Shepherd's Christmas" begins with our first lamb. We got spots!
Last night at feeding, it was so beautiful out that I couldn't resist relaxing out in the paddock and spending some quality time with the girls. Everyone tucked into their hay with the exception of Shelteringpines Arabesque, who picked at her feed.
Arabesque then wandered off by herself into a calf hut, where she periodically peered out, grinding her teeth with her tail sticking straight out. I gave the girl her privacy for a few hours, then came out to check up on her. Imagine my delight when my flashlight beam picked up some bright white out in the grass!
So we are off to a good start! A lovely moorit yuglet sokket ewe lamb, strong as an ox. Sire is Eragon. I plan on retaining her unless she develops horn buds. Yippee!!
