After I posted, yesterday morning, I sent the boys down to do my chores (their school got canceled because of a sewer line break, and they DEFINITELY had the energy!). And they came running back to the house about 20 minutes later saying that Myst, or little female sheep, had a baby! I ran to thee barn in my good shoes and clothes and acted as quickly as I could in the cold, windy weather. I have read that if a lamb gets chilled, it can kill it. SO I ran back to the house grabbed a towel, and started calling to try to find a heat lamp. We only have 2, and we have one on baby chicks and one one the other 2 baby sheep... So two good friends, Carrie and Vickie, both said they would bring me lamps. Until they came I kept a towel wrapped around the little GUY (yep, another boy!). We had some trouble with Lindsay thinking this new little one was her baby, and trying to break through a fence, so we had to watch them closely all day. But after hubby came home and made them their own little areas, we were good!
Here are some pics of the babies!
Look at the hair on these little fella! This is Lindsay's baby boy, he was born Monday:
And here is the new addition to the Muddy Boots Farm... A little male, who is SUPER friendly. He is going to have 2 horns like his mama:
If you even try to tell me this guy isn't cute, I won't listen...
He loves his mama! What a good boy!
And he is NOT camera shy! This one he is walking towards me, and I think he MAY be smiling!
So, whatcha think? I don't think I will mind going to the barn if I get greeted by these little blessings everyday! Wanna hold one? Come on over! :)
