Lambs Out to Pasture!
The Wild Rose Farm lambs have been outside enjoying the sun. Almost half of the ewes have lambed so far with no real problems (knock on wood). Everyone is healthy at this point! It's just amazing to watch the newborns struggle to their feet and instinctively start to begin to try & nurse.
Once they get to be a few days old and start to venture away from their mothers, the lambs seem to do everything in a group ..... here they are following one of the ewes back up to the barn, only to turn around and come right back down again!
