The Lull Between Storms...
The Midwest has been wracked by violent storms over the past three weeks and the Bluff Country is no exception.
As I was walking out to check on the ewes and lambs the other day, I saw this awesome sky "above my big barn". It looked like streaks emanating from the roof of the barn. It lasted for at least a half hour.
Then the sun broke out and everything was enveloped in a golden glow.
I turned the expecting ewes out onto fresh pasture...
Not that they NEED any more to eat!
"Check this out! Mom says that in this picture, I don't even look pregnant! She seems to think that Zest is going to have her babies first and then Godiva. I wonder how she knows this stuff...?"
Trust me, when it comes to who's going to lamb and when, I don't know much of anything! But Zest does look like she's the closest, followed closely by Godiva. I'd say we've got maybe a week to go. And, yes, I was amazed at how trim Dream looked in that photo! It's some kind of fluke of angle and/or light though...she definitely looks VERY pregnant!
We're getting close, in the Bluff Country!
