make that 16 sheep...

New ram lamb born early this morning, April 25th. He's got little horns and good set of lungs on him. Showed up early this morning to a proud mother. In this video the hours-old boy decides to come and visit his new shepherd. It was a touching surprise. Magical day, this.

Nothing sweeter than baby lambs and calves. We have one more ewe to lamb and our cow is due in May.

It is one of my favorite blessings of Spring.

What a cute little guy!! And what a attentive momma, she seamed so patient with you and him. He looks like a little Lambert. There long ago was a cartoon that made me think of your little brave and bold little man. Hope you enjoy :

He is a fine looking lamb, Jenna. Reminds me of baby goats. There is nothing more fun or sweeter than lambs or kids.

When you are giving birth to a baby in the hospital the nurse tells you when "the ring of fire" is coming; I can't imagine what a HORNED ring of fire feels like! Way to go mama.
