I will have 3 more ewe lambs leaving very shortly, but am a bit sad, since I don't usually part with any lambs until July or August. It seems as if lambing and all that it entails has become a tad bittersweet for me of late. I love the anticipation of what the lamb crop will bring me each year, but hate parting with my favorite little ones too. I do take comfort in knowing that the vast majority of them go to good homes, but there are always those that just are not good breeding stock and tough decisions must be made. I've been very fortunate and have been able to find good pet homes for the majority of my lambs and sheep. By keeping my flock small, I'm hoping to continue finding happy places for my lambs that can't be registered.
Another busy weekend ahead for us as I'm hoping to get some fleeces skirted, help my friend shear a couple llamas and alpacas, attend a friend's wedding reception and attend a pool party on Sunday for another friends birthday. Somewhere in there I have to comb out my angora bunnies and build them a new box to put on their cage so I can move them out of my little chicken coop. There's hay to get home and stacked in the shed and my boss has generously given us a large shed that we are hauling to our house to house my next batch of meat chickens.
Gotta get a vacation on horseback planned soon, or the summer will be gone and we won't get to go.
Maybe someone can help me figure out how to clone myself so all this stuff gets done before the garden starts throwing produce at me.
Hope everyone has a spectacular weekend........
Tata for now.
