The Woolly Tide

Another real sign of Spring.  Over at Farm Buddy's place, the lambs have started appearing.  Two sets of triplets are the first arrivals, 2 girls and 1 boy in each set.  One baby got a bit stuck, but made it out into the world with a little help.  So far so good.  Five more ewes to go.

    1. FB is going to answer the first question, they are crossbred and I can never keep track. She is not a knitter, but thinks she would like to be if she can figure it out.

    1. Their tails were badly docked and are way too short.

      I saw the pictures of your little sheep, VERY cute. What do the donkeys think of her?

    2. Ummmm...they better don't think about her!! They just alowed to whacht at the other side of fence.

      About a mounth ago,my blind, 12 years old Boston Terrier,felt through a hole at fence,inside of donkeys space.Althow they all are very use to see and smell each other every day,donkeys nearly killed my dog.Thanks I was near, and hear all the donkeys screaming and others dogs barks. I can forget the image in my head.Dog under donkeys legs, been walk and bitten.!!! a nightmare!!
      He can't see anything,so he could't avoid.
      He got one finger bad hurt,and a few bites.He also has a bad tired heart,and got very nervius,so I worried about heart stops.
      Now he's fine,his finger well.But I don't alow him go close,looking for some donkeys poo to eat.
      I've seen my donkeys chassing a rabit!I know they are very territorials,but never thought they can be that bad with my dogs.They all look very friendly when they see each day through the fence.
