Tuesday EWEsday: Lambing Time

You are my Shepherd, and I am your lamb. and You will be with me wherever I am...

We do most of our lambing in the fall. Our breed the Horned Dorset  is very versatile so they can even lamb two times each year. This is a photo of a ewe (girl) lamb born a few days ago.

Who could not smile when this little lamb is looking at you. She has a terrific mom and a buck (boy) for a  brother. She weighed in at about 15lbs and her brother was about the same size. This is a great size lamb to have and even better that it was a set of twins. It is our goal to get two lambs at least out of of our ewes each year.
