148 days and counting

Today is 148 days from when I saw Braveheart breed you, Brava. Just sayin'.

Last night Brava acted like she might be having mild contractions so I put her in the corner pen. She seemed to enjoy the clean sheets and room service, but didn't utilize it as a maternity ward.

It will be interesting to compare her lambs this year - if she decides to have them - to last year's. Neither Beau nor Boo had erupted teeth at birth and Boo was quite small (though vigorous), making me think they might have been a wee bit early. This year's lambs should be thoroughly incubated, unless she didn't take on Oct. 30. In that case, I guess I'll be waiting on her another two weeks -ARG!

Come to think of it, last year she lambed on a Sunday afternoon. Maybe Sunday is "her" day?

That's it for now at . . .

I love the photo! It gave me a chuckle to see the bathtub. I know you probably have it there as a water trough, but I could just picture someone taking a bath in the middle of a lush green pasture.

I think I'm as anxious as you are for these new lambs to make their debut :-D

They like to keep us guessing, don't they? :)
