What Lambs Are Learning ...

Wild Rose Farm Lamb Tasting Sheep Mineral Mix
Lambs learn to mimic their dams ... these lambs are sampling the the sheep trace mineral mix.  A perfect (perfectly lucky!) shot of the lamb sticking it's tongue out licking the mineral off of it's nose. 
Wild Rose Farm Twin Lambs Touching Water
We try to keep the buckets full to the top so that the lambs can touch their noses to the surface and learn to drink.  They tap the surface a few times and snort, but quickly get the idea.  
No lambs so far today - temps in the 70's, so mid-day is spent under the pine trees for the pasture ewes ...
