And Now

On to the sheep. It is into the anxious waiting time now. Brida who is always on the 'stocky' side is enormous. I can now see her teats hanging down below her wool so it would seem that the arrival of lambs cannot be far off. I expect it will be sometime in the next couple of weeks.

As you can see, Draga has that bulge as well. I don't think she will be far behind. I hope it all goes well for her this year and she gets to be a mom.

Erina Snowy is a delight. She's a spunky little thing and in this spring weather she loves to run and jump around... which leads me to believe she is likely not bred. If she does have a lamb, I don't think it will be until July.

Renauld is as friendly as ever and he has a very nice crop of wool on him, too.

And Basil... He still lives. I want him to be bigger before I eat him. And I am not clear on why he is not bigger. But in the meantime he is very sweet. Eirina is his best friend and he would like to be the father of her lamb so this causes some difficulty between he and Renauld and results in some half-hearted head butting.

So I am waiting anxiously for lambing season to begin. I want everything to go well. I didn't actually see the breeding happen last fall so I don't have any dates. I think it will be earlier than last year because Renauld was not a lamb himself.

It must be an anxious time as you anticipate the birth of the lambs! But you're more experience this year which should mean some smooth births. I'm excited to see pictures of some lambs!!

Also, I love your bunny collection. They're so cute!!

And YAY to you finally posting something!!
