Blue Work Socks

The Farmer was following The Farmers Wife
around Giant Tiger as many farmers do
Of course there were many items of interest to Farmers
The Farmers gaze fell upon work socks
Not that he was in need of work socks he has lots
It was The Farmers creative eye
So once back at the farm he set himself to the task
Here is the result of The Farmers trip to the GT Boutique.

Well another set of twins are in the general population today
They are two weeks old and ready to mingle
They went out with mom who likes the grain.

One thinks it sees something curious in the door of the barn

Something in the door of the barn sees something new as well

Lets go check it out

Everyone appears to get along

More Socks

Its been cold and nasty on the farm for longer than The Farmer cares to remember.
The wind coming across the field cuts through you like a knife.
What better weather to stay inside and make a few pair of socks.

Well Lady Mary Finally Gave Birth
She is the last of The Farm's ewes to lamb for 2013
The Farmer finally got to discover one.
A purebred Romney female was hoped for but it was not to be
Its a boy
He will be a big one

He sure is cute

Mom doesn't appear to interested after working up a hunger

Well he will ignore her as well
Two can play at this game

The Farmer waited until today to make the announcement
in hopes that another may be on its way 
but 24 hours would be a long time between births

The Farmer and The Farmers Wife
are pleased with this years brood
They look forward to the sheering
and plan on keeping the Romney fleeces
Some spinning may be in their future.

Lambing 2013

Lambing Time
Well its year three of The Farmers sheep experience.
The Farmer and The Farmers Wife have been excited for weeks now.
Three expectant mothers all nearing their time.

Two weeks ago The Farmers Wife found this treat during her morning trip to the barn

A boy and a girl were the first arrivals of 2013

Two weeks old and eating hay already

Time to get free access to the outdoors

 How cute are they

The Farmers next expectant couple

Another morning surprise for The Farmers Wife
Its another set of twins a boy and a girl again 

They are very new

Important first drink

 Mom will lick them clean

The Farmer added a heat lamp to help warm them up.

A quick nap should do the trick

Getting to know one another

The Farmer will  leave them in a private area for a week or two
They will bond and momma will get a chance to rest.

Day two and a morning snack

They appear to like the camera

That's two down and one to go

The Farmer will blog again after the next birth
The new ewe came to the farm pregnant
She is a purebred Romney like The Farmers Ram
The Farmer is unsure of her due date but she looks close.
