It’s definitely not uncommon to see sheep in the fields around here, but there’s only a short period of time when you can glimpse little lambs jumping in the fields.
We didn’t find any jumping lambs in the fields at Coombes Farm, but we did find newborn lambs.
And loads of baa-ing ewes…soon to be mama sheep.
Two big barns, with hay-covered pens, were filled with expectant ewes–some would have triplets and some would have twins.
Many of the lambs were sleeping (being born is hard work) or having some milk.
I loved visiting this farm!
It’s hard to believe that spring is nearly here especially because it’s snowing today!
Have you ever seen the birth of an animal? Do you know any spring lambs? I’d love to hear!
PS. Deanne once helped a ewe in labour: reaching in and re-arranging the little legs so that the ewe could deliver the lamb properly. Go Mom!
