Ready to pop

Inky still has two weeks to go. The daffodils may bloom while Rick's mom is here (she'll love that!).

I now realize that waiting for lambs is just as hard when you know the due date as when you don't.

Waiting impatiently at . . .

The waiting for lambs is both exciting and nerve wracking at the same time. Inky does look ready to go soon. Mine are looking large as well, but I'll have a better idea when they're due after Friday.

You're telling me! I have to wait until April 27th!! ARGH!!!

I think Inky will be relieved when she isn't super-sized anymore.

We have about 10 days to go, although Scarlet is looking ready, I am guessing she will lamb before the end of the week.
I learned that knowing the day they are due is just as hard, you should have asked! ;-)

I have until March 20th for my AI girls and I don't really think any will go that long! The poor things look like Inky and they waddle, puff when they breathe and moan and groan when they get up. I feel so guilty :)

Poor Inky - She looks like she needs a "Wide Load" sign on her rear :) We have some of our Finns/Gotlands who may be carrying quads or more - and those girls are already HUGE !!!

Poor Inky! She looks as though she'll triplet or have two BIG ones at the very least. I can hardly wait!

I'm so glad that I still have a month to go before I even have to think about lambing!

I am so impatient for lambs too. It looks so much greener and warmer there. My DH was a VISTA volunteer in AK after college and we spent spring break in Seattle that year. I flew out there to meet him. It was so beautiful and in full bloom, about a whole month ahead of spring here. Your pictures reminded me of that and that it won't be took long for us. The end of winter is close. :)

I completely agree about the waiting part, it is just as hard when you know as when you don't know. Inky looks quite a bit different then she did when she was here :)

Dark colored sheep are my absolute favorite...happy lambing! :)

Just sitting here waiting patiently for Inky's lambs' pictures and blooming daffodils!
