It Takes A Village...Or A Sister

We've been calling this small mixing pen the "cat corner" (there's a litter of kittens behind that big fan ;-), but I also called this the "pen of confusion" the other day.  I was filling water buckets and noticed things were a little crazy and a couple lambs in this pen were probably not nursing off the correct moms.  I watched for a minute and sure enough they were all swapped around.  

It's not normal for ewes to let other ewes lambs nurse and two of the lambs are a couple days older than the other two so I was concerned the smaller ones were not getting enough to eat.  I pulled the lambing book to check ear tags so I could figure out who was supposed to be where and guess what!

The two moms are sisters :-). 

It's definitely not an ideal situation, but they seem to be making it work.  These are their first lambs so I'm sure they are happy to have each other company and support and between the two of them, they've got this motherhood thing :-D.

Sweet Sisters

Those sweet sisters from the other day.

Could they be any cuter?

I couldn't pick a favorite, but I did make one into a puzzle :-).

The Babysitter

I'm going to keep you in suspense for the even cuter pictures of the sisters from yesterday.  Sorry.  Today is National Farm Animal Day so I want to give some props to a hard working farm animal I found babysitting half the lambs in the nursery pen this afternoon.

I posted a quick video from Final Frontier Farm at the time and one of the stars of the show was this sweet napping lambie.  I love when they fall asleep and their heads roll back and back and back and just before they hit the ground they jerk back up...and a kid sleeping through math class ;-).

The two lambs in this picture are her lambs.  In the video you can see all the other lambs curled up around her.  She's apparently the neighborhood favorite :-).

You Might Think This Is A Cute Picture

And for sure it is...but believe it or not, it's not the cutest picture I took of these two lambs :-).
