    As many of BYH'ers know we lost our only mature ewe to lambing difficulties last week. Our small ewe also lost her triplets. Being on a farm we understand loss is a part of the deal, but I had been documenting her every step for five months straight. So this was harder than ever expected..

    But amidst all this sorrow there is a glimmer of hope, today we are going to pick up a Ewe and her lamb. The lamb is a beautiful caramel colored ewe lamb and the mother is a creamy/white colored ewe. Both are wool shepp and Yes there will be pictures..


    Thanks to everyone who have supported me through all of this. It hasnt been easy but it makes it better for having all this support :hugs:hugs:hugs

    I'm so sorry about ewe and lambs! Losing animals is never fun.:(

    Love love love, our new girls! :love:love:love

    But sadly no pictures, today :rolleyes: .. Lily seemed nervous but they are all in a stall together so they will bond.

    Getting the girls home was fun xD Rosie (Mom) was in a crate that she was to big for and she had to lay down. I held Clover (baby) in my lap. There were a few times I thought the crate would tip and I did get little sheep pellets all over me :hide....but they are now home safe and sound. Clover is such a little ham and she poses for pictures( even if she doesnt know it) It was so cute because she started eating hay that was meant for mom. I still miss Mammy, but this will help alot.

    Stay tuned for pictures.. and oh Pass the popcorn! :p
