Production projections

Looks like it's going to be a seven-egg day:


Aaaand . . . (drumroll, please) . . . it looks like it will be a three-ewe lambing season!!!

Yesterday I spent extra time getting hands-on with the ewes (since I couldn't ride my horse). Annabelle is still growing her babe(s); I can't express milk so we may have some days to wait yet. Neither Marta nor Sarai have convincing udder development, but Marta has a bit more and is a proven ewe, so I'm counting on her being PG. Sarai is the big question mark. As I stood with my hand pressed against Sarai's right side, I felt the unmistakable rapid-fire kicking of a wee creature eager to stretch its legs. WHEEEEEE!
Waiting on lambing season just got more exciting at . . .

Hi Michelle! Been a while since I stopped in, priorities change, things get shuffled. We have three lambs on the ground, and we're done! I might start posting to my blog again, not sure just yet.
Hope all is well with you and yours!

Yay! My lambing season was a total bust, but all 3 of the goat girls are due soon, so I will have bouncing babies to cuddle with soon. Fingers crossed for healthy ewe lambs all around for you.
