Holy smokes are they beautiful.

We finished our large raised bed garden today and plan to complete the smaller one by the weekend. Even the process of building the boxes was fun, I like to build things. It made me feel good to be outside and create something so useful. I have never planted anything other than tomatos and herbs but we're going a little bigger this year. When I see what you have done it inspires me to try my own little project. I was thrilled today when my son's big surprize for my mom was his watermelon seedling!

I can't imagine growing SHEEP!

Man. You have your own *pick-me-up* in your yard. I had a big goofy grin just watching them.

Simply beautiful.

I love them! I aspire to one day have sheep myself!
What breed are they? I might've missed it and was just wondering. Good Luck, they're beautiful!

They are so adorable! They look like little stuffed animals from the camera. Are they really soft, or they all greasy like some sheep? (Goat person, here!)

Adorable...of course. I'd love to see some footage of them nursing, just to see how they manage with all that fleece. Do they half disappear??

Squeeee! Those are the cutest little animals I've ever seen. Have you considered continuing to milk the momma goats once the lambs have been weaned? Or is cheese one project too many....

They sure are solid little cuties:)
It's always nice when single lambs have another one around the same age to bounce around with:)
Don't you find that a lot of hay gets wasted when you feed on the ground like that, and I see the sheep have done in a tree or two:(

That co worker who said panning looks good on you? She was right, I can hear it in your voice.

Congratulations sheparding lady, you got yourself some honest to goodness gamboling lambs!

Lambing, not panning... Thanks auto-correct!

Good grief, those lambs are adorable. Hate to say it, but they are cuter than my little guy (who's very cute indeed!).

They are scottish blackface lambs, Tatiana.

Jenom: no milking! Scotties are not milking sheep, it would be like milking a horse! (I do dream of a mini jersey someday...some day)

Are you going to band their tails, Jenna, or leave them long?

Adorable!! Wish I could sit down at your place and watch some FarmTV. For now I just watch my chickens scratching around.

I feed my horses on the ground also, and yes kind of a waste but it all goes back into the composte so waste not want not. What is wasted on the ground goes back to the garden. The big cirle of life on the farm!
Can't wait to have my own little bundles of fur bouncing around my pasture's. Surely put's a smile on your face!
