A foggy morning, a warm mug of tea and new baby lambs are some of the things that have been going on this week. It started off warm and but now a cold snap has returned.
There has been so much going on here lately that I really don't know how to the find the words for it all. So I decided to simply write about today.
Early this morning the phone range. One of our ewes had lambed! Two little babies, a boy and a girl. After the morning jobs were done we hopped in the car and drove over to see them. Daisy and her babies will be coming in early October, along with our other sheep. I felt so excited going and visiting them today.
To top it off, this same afternoon one of our cows calved at sunset. We stood in the fading light and watched her give birth and help the wobbly new calf up. We're yet to find out whether it is a little bull or a little heifer. Hopefully we'll see in the morning.
So today there were three births - one here by our cow and two elsewhere by our sheep that will soon be here too. It's been quite exciting!
What did you get up to today?
I hope your week is going well.
*Update! Our little calf turned out to be a beautiful little Bull Calf, and a bull he shall stay as he looks just perfect!
