Our lambing season came to an end yesterday when Daisy gave birth to a baby girl – a mocha colored black back with Mommy’s white splotch that bleeds down her face. Oh, she’s adorable!!! I do have to warn you 3 of the pictures are of the birthing process and are a little graphic.
Stormcloud’s getting closer
We didn’t get to see Joy being born because Honey had her early in the morning, so this was a real thrill for us. I had no idea that animals grunted and groaned just like humans do! Kristen kept saying, “Really, Mom, you’ve been through it!” We felt so bad for Daisy because those pushing contractions HURT, but we kept talking to her and praying until we’d prayed her here.
Here she is getting her first bath
Stormcloud Mocha standing all by herself!
This one was taken this afternoon. Still less than a day old. She was trying to hop around this morning.
Hello world! (I think she and Present would be good friends)
While I was out taking pictures I decided to grab a few of the other sheep and then Libby want in on the action. Enjoy!!
This is Joshua looking forlorn in the “Stud Stall”. He’s probably now wishing he’d made himself a son to keep him company!
And LibertyBelle is asking where HER new stall is! “I want one too! MOOOOOO!!”
And That’s What’s Happening on the Hobby Farm!
