Brand new lambs!

"Shorts" (or Shorty for short :) our first spring lamb ~ was born March 8th at 9:30pm. This little ram lamb promises to be an entertaining addition to our wee flock. He and 'the Mrs' are doing just fine.
Then, last night at 11:15pm Missy delivered a ewe lamb. It was not an easy or quick delivery but the gentle shepherd was on hand to assist and in the end, all was well.
The weather has turned cold again today but the past few days of warm winds has melted a good deal of snow. Last summers dried grasses are poking up here and there and the meadow 'lake' that appears every spring is beginning to form at the low spots. Soon we'll be watching for the Trumpeter Swans and Sandhill Cranes on their spring migrations.
