Talk about bittersweet -- there it is!!~ TWO but both rams....usually not most desired but, depending on bloodlines...maybe. They DO look like healthy hunks. Then, there's that stinking vet bill. :(

But, like Bay....I love how you keep retirees. I have old minis for same reason and this year, an unexpected foal! Mare delivered nicely, however. We both had farm surprises! :D would be nice if the ewe does come into milk!

Your DD nailed it -- poetic or not. :lol:

Just another couple of pics of the old girl and her lambs.

Ahhhh, but she was worth it! The boys are adorable.
Thank you. Over here (Wales) this just NEVER happens. This breed of sheep should never have oestrus as late as April and certainly shouldn't get pregnant in the absence of a ram! ( and when she's an old lady!)

She loves the lambs she didn't give birth to and can't feed so very dearly.😟:lol:

She’s a whole lot smarter than you think. An old lady out for a fling, a cougar ewe stalking a young hunk, consummating the act and hiding the evidence of her sexual escapades until her bulging belly gave her away.

Then you kindly stepped in, saving her the messy birth, you feed the lambs for her, and all she has to do is love them. Wise old hussy....... LOL
