Baby it's cold outside

Well on the coldest day of the year (so far) we had an addition to the farm...10 little additions. It is hard to find them all but I promise they are all there.

We had my Family for the Christmas season this year
and we travelled all over the place from New Orleans to Nashville.

Outside the Opryland Hotel..

We had a blast and now back to the holiday season and looking after the animals.

Lambing and few other things...

Here we are...four more Ewes to go! We started with the lovely doeling from Molly.

Then we had a litter of puppies...we did not expect all eight of them!!

A VERY close third was Baby Ruth with her twins

Then it was Gretl later on in the day.

Patience suprised us all when she lambed, we thought she would be later.

Leise lost her ram lamb but Almond Joy had her twins the next day.

Those four ewes can take their time because we have a lot going on already!

The Waiting Game....

So here we are looking at our Girls getting Bigger and Bigger. I took a few pics and I must say that I am REALLY starting to wonder about Almond Joy. Last year she gave us two wonderful Lambs but look how big she is already...

The reason that I wonder is because her Mother was known to have Triplets.

More Great news here is that we have added two more Great Pyrenees to our Farm a few days ago. They do not have names yet and the previous Owner did not really interact with them so I have been Visiting, Talking to them...just Welcoming them to the Farm. I think that it will all be fine once everyone is settled in.

Here are a few of our Pregnant Does...

Finally, Here is a new Game...Name that Butt!

So... Between Now and Lambing/Kidding we will be making some Birthing Pens, Double Checking our Supplies and just waiting...
