My lambing jugs are all set up, loaded with straw and equipped with heat lamps to take the chill off if necessary....all they need are little lambies to occupy that lonely space.
The girls are all getting quite large. Since the lambs gain most of their body weight the last 6 weeks of gestation, the changes in the ewes bodies are more evident every day. I will never get tired of watching the gymnastics going on within those enormous bellies while the ewes lie down to get some much needed rest, almost as if the lambs are preparing for the lamb races that are sure to come once they are all on the ground.
Daisy is bred to Khazar, my spotted ram from Stephen Rouse. She should have some wildly spotted lambies in there!
Lilly is one of Zar's girls as well.Edrea is also part of the Khazar fan club. Edrea carries spots so perhaps I will get some flashy spotted Katmogets.
Guinivere is bred to my gulmoget ram......hoping for some moorit gullies.
Yeah, I'm pretty sure it will be soon! Just a guess : ).
"I am telling you, Lilly, one of you better have lambs soon before mom loses her mind...more than usual, I mean."
I HAVE lambs on the ground and I'm STILL have coniption fits over the two who haven't lambed yet and aren't letting me in on when they might!
You may have lamb envy but it is nothing compared to your poor neighbor up the road that has no lambs!!!!! Now that's lamb envy.
Seriously -- I don't mean to look like a stalker!!!
Let me know when the girls start.... until then .... I'll keep spinning.
Your girls look great. Those should be some beautiful lambs. Up and out at 5 something this morning to check on my ewes. My Shetlands look ready any minute, but nothing yet. The waiting is miserable.
Sitting here in the city, waiting for my farm blogs to post baby pictures - now that's REAL lamb envy! I'm depending on you ladies (Moms AND ewes!)

Oh, I have a feeling there may be lambie pictures from you this weekend.
Love the photo of the hen and her gossiping!
You are not alone. I have lamb envy as well. For two weeks I have thought that Jewel will finally have her lambs and feel disappointed when she hasn't. On the other hand as long as they are safe and healthy when they arrive I guess I can wait.
