Peekaboo ewes and bouncing babies

Laura was in my area briefly to look at a car today, and paid me a most welcome visit. We packed a lot into a short time – lunch, a proper-use-of-crutches lesson, a knitting consultation, and crutching Sarai and Marta. Let their lambs come now!
Watching her during Benny's late-night feeding, Sarai had me fooled into thinking she would lamb last night. Her udder isn't that big, but she is a first-timer so that isn't always indicative. Crossing my fingers for a EWE lamb from her on Monday, so I can name HER Baileys Irish Cream!

Later I turned Marta and Sarai out and took Benny his early-afternoon bottle.

For the first time since his second "resurrection," Benny wasn't that interested in eating. He'd suck awhile, then go check out Annabelle's options. Then he'd come back for a few swallows, but quit to bop around the pen. Up until now, Jet has been the playful one, but Benny sure had him beat this afternoon. I don't know if it was because he's finally getting some milk from mom or what, but watching his joie de vivre sure made my heart sing!





Happy-happy joy-joy, at . . .

  1. The lambs are adorable . . . how could they be anything but I can't imagine how you are doing all that you are doing while on crutches. What horrible timing to have the knee problems! Geesh.

  2. It really, really makes me want lambs again. I'll just go in the other room and slap myself silly. Seems like you are getting done what needs to be - Benny and Jet are the CUTEST lambs ever!
