Friday Surprise!

Yesterday we went to move the sheep to fresh pasture and came upon a brand new lamb! According to Tom and Cas, this is the latest lamb they’ve had since starting the herd over six years ago.

The lamb was sleeping this morning, tucked into a tall tuft of grass.

The mama ewe started bleating, encouraging the lamb to get up and nurse.

After nursing, Mama looked it over and cuddled for a while. It’s hard to tell how small they are–the lamb is about the size of a rabbit. Mama is our smallest ewe.

Then the lamb started exploring on springy, wobbly legs!

Mama stayed close by. This is her first lamb and she’s doing great!
