Meet our first lamb of the season, a singleton ram born early this afternoon to Cormo ewe Papaya. I came home from the grocery story to find him in the barn, on his feet, all cleaned up and sturdily nursing. Lamb is tuckered out and Papaya is worrying over him, licking him up and down. She's still having contractions, trying to pass the placenta so she's constantlyt blatting. I expect to find it when I head back to the barn in a minute for afternoon chores. Just wanted to share the news.
Thanks for the great name suggestions. This little guy will remain unnamed until we'ved settled on this year's theme.
And a big thank you to Cheryl of In the Loop for hosting my book signing and yarn trunk show yesterday. I enjoyed the visit!
Stay tuned for more updates from the lambing barn.
