We're not through with lambing here at Oleo Acres, aka Sheep Thrills Farm. We have Ailee and Loretta to go. Both are first-timers never having had lambs before and both are taking their sweet time about getting on with things! What is it Lucy from Peanuts says? "Argh!"
I knew that they were not cycling with their mothers when they went in with the ram, but I didn't think they would be this far behind. It appears Loretta will lamb first as her udder is really filling in and the lamb(s) are starting to drop. I expect she'll lamb in a couple of days. Ailee, on the other hand, is trying to maintain her girlish figure or holding everything in when I'm looking. Her udder is developing, but not as far along as Loretta's.
So, to entertain you between the periods of mass hysteria that lambing is, we offer you the following photos. Enjoy!
OK, Boys! Heads up, straighten those legs, and get those horns growing in correctly! No slackers in this outfit! Everyone better make the cut this year...you need to go find your own herds. We're full-up here. :) And tell those Aunts of yours I want ewes only for the remainder of this breeding season! (From their lips to God's ears...please!)
