For those of you who are checking back to this blog on a daily basis for a "Lamb Report", I wish I had more to offer. Absolutely nothing has been happening with the girls other than normal, everyday activities. You can tell I have a following...yessiree...a following right up to the open feed room door by sheep and chicken alike. Here you see the mob hot on my heals when I went into the feedroom looking for a handout, or better yet, something snatched while they think I'm not looking. Sure fooled them, didn't I? ;-) This is Amanda trying to sneak up on me from behind. From this angle she doesn't look too rotund, but believe me when I say she's waddling everywhere. There are certain angles of viewing her that lead one to believe in litters in sheep...yes, she's really big. I was sure she'd lamb before Lacey. Lacey *should* be due on the 19th. At least the 19th is 147 days from when we last saw her in "active negotiations" with Skittles. The only thing I'm sure of now is that both ewes are indeed pregnant. And Skittles isn't saying a word about it either, just looks at me, snickers, then goes back to eating or hitting the tire-swing-toy!
So, we wait. I'd rather have everyone "late" than have problems, so I'll just keep watch and wait for signs of the impending births. I know we're getting very close...yup, any minute now...any day now...anytime...getting closer...
And I leave you with this picture of Amanda who was planning a "hit and run" on my pants just before I turned around. This must be a new game they've come up with - "Let's see who can plant a nose-print on Mom's butt and run without her knowing who it was!"
Fools. don't they know there are better things they could be doing....like having lambs?
