Jesse gets out and About

We sat on a bench under the big oak. Jesse loves a lap.

Winslow brought a couple hennies by to meet the young lad.

Jesse wanted to go for a walk. We went to the pasture fence to meet his brothers!

Who are these other guys, Curly?

Well, this is our cousin, Raymond.

Is it time for my ba-ba yet?

 

 

 

 

Jesse Lumpkin Love a Ba-Ba

Teeny man Jesse Lumpkin polishing off a ba-ba

Jesse’s purty small and fragile, but he has an attitude and a half! He’s on a diet of milk replacer and electrolytes. Gettin’ stronger every hour. Today, we ran across the baby pasture together. He got winded, and as soon as I saw that, we stopped. But, his legs aren’t shaky today! My poor little lambikins.

Mary-Ma-to-Be

This picture doesn’t show the girth of my big girl. Her body is changin’ and so is her personality. Where once Mary was bossy and skittish, now she is bossy and affectionate. She is asking for rubs – her face and neck and back. She has been allowing me to feel her belly – and get kicked by the occupant. All very cool.

Big Mary

Wasn’t all that long ago Mary weighed 8 pounds. She’s a year and a half, and off to the races. Very healthy. Very active. Very loud. We can’t wait.

Beneath the Tail

I’m sure she would cringe if she knew that thousands of people on Facebook have already seen her underments. But, maybe not. So far, she’s accepting her newly developed bounteousness with as much grace as any great big ol’ sheepess might.

This was an unplanned pregnancy, by the way. She and her Ma got through the fence and paid a visit to the rams. And dang, we thought we got everyone separated pretty fast. Oh well. We shall see what we shall see.

Holly & Babes

After Breakfast

Alrighty then. All the worrying over Holly’s pregnancy is over & done. She is the proud, and very happy mama, of twins…a boy and a girl. Best mama ever. She loves to be a mama. You should hear her talk to her lambs. Oh, sweetness.  So, there you have it. Pretty darn good, huh?

And for the record…here’s a pic of their cousins, Annie & Rosie on the pasture this morning. They were born Feb 10, and look at those little horns!

Annie & Rosie

Oh, and for the record, everyone was SO happy about this morning’s birth…look at this henny swinging in a basket!

WOOT WOOT!

Yep, that’s what she was saying.
