Welcome Reba and John Lennon

I'm a bit behind on my blog posts, had to take some time to spend with family over Easter weekend.  I only had 2 lambs born since the last explosion of little ones last Friday morning.  Garnet had a very classy little moorit krunet sokket ram lamb and his fleece has got me a little excited, I'm hoping it stays nice as he matures.  Farrah, a ewe I leased from Lori of Sommarang Farm for 2 years, had a flashy little moorit flecket ewe lamb with great looking fleece on Easter Sunday in the afternoon.  My first singles this year, and since both are so nice, I don't mind that they had singles one little bit.
If I repeat myself between posts or babble on incoherently, I apologize, but the lack of sleep is kicking my butt this week.  I don't really know why I think I have to get up so much, most of the time the ewes just look at me like I'm out of my mind as they take care of their lambs that didn't need my assistance at all.  I do know that the lambing pens that we built in the shed this year are a huge improvement over past year's.  The inside pens are now filled and once the cold snap moves through tomorrow, mom's and babies are heading for the great outdoors.  I have 6 ewes left that have not lambed, and I have no idea what they are waiting for, but I need some sleep and had a nice long chat with them last night at 2 am.  And out of the corner of my eye, I could swear that I saw them take their hoof and make twirly motions around the side of their head and I'm 99.9% certain that one of them rolled their eyes at me.  I get no respect from them.  (sheesh)

He who angers you, controls you.

And my favorite.......You can't control what others say or do, but you can control your reaction.
