A New Beginning! A new life on the farm! What a surprise this little lamb was, for he was born so early in January to his Dam (Mother) Trixie a Ewe that is a Gulf Coast Registered Sheep!
He was born on January seventh.
In temperature that were down to 10 degrees at night,
and 20 degrees in the day.
He stayed warm in the barn, in a bed of hay.
Our Gulf Coast Registered Sheep are all white.
Now Trixie played a big trick on us for we have never had a colored lamb before!
The day the little boy (ram) was born, I dried him off. Then held my breath he would make it through the cold weather this last week.
Trixie is watching over her lamb.
Trixie is my oldest Ewe, she is nine years old.
She getting a little old to be having lambs.
Sadie will soon give birth, and the little ram will have a playmate.
It is so fun to see lambs jump and play. I can’t wait!
My Hungarian Komandor guard dog, I love so dearly.
She loves the new little lamb!
Our flock of chickens now miss this grass!
How I miss my French Chick! A few weeks after I had surgery, I was asking everyday if Terry had seen French Chick. I kept looking out the windows and French doors for her, worrying where she was for several weeks. When I got home I saw my French Chick and was so happy nothing had happen to her. For a fox, I think got five of my other chickens. Finally Terry told me he accidental ran over her! The chickens would follow him as he drove the truck out to the barn to feed and she some how got under the truck. He didn’t want to tell me for he new I would be so upset.
She was to be laying Chocolate Color Eggs by now. I was very sad!
This last week every day Terry would break the ice in the pond for the sheep to drink.
Terry had fun throwing the ice across the frozen pond. The ice was about 4 inches thick.
Yes, he thought about getting a board and sliding across,
but once one foot went in the cold ice water he changed his mind. lol
I hope you enjoyed a day on the farm with my new little lamb.
Sometimes living on a farm can be heart breaking.
but all in all
Life is Good Here On Our Farm
I sure loved coming back indoors to sit by the fire and drink a cup of hot tea!
While watching the animals out the French Doors.
As Always Save a Cup of Tea for Me!
