Baa Baa Black Sheep

This morning, we woke up to lambs born.  She had triplets, but we lost one before we realized she was even in labor.  The were all a good size.  I thought for sure we would have them last week as it was much colder; historically, our babies have usually come on the coldest night of the season. 

Come to think of it, I'm not sure I remember any babies from any of our farm animals born during the day...oh I take that back...we had baby piglets born on Inauguration Day, right as the oath was being taken!  But it looked cold in Washington, D.C. at that time, so maybe that's it.. ;)

So we have two baa, baa black sheep lambs and they are adorable.  Their momma is a Suffolk and the father too...  I understand they will be all black for a few months and then, they like their parents, will be black and white.

So welcome little ones to this crazy life...you will be loved.

P.S. I wanted to post a picture, but as this is my first post to my new blog, I don't know how to do that...or even if I can.

Congrats on the lambs! We're expecting a few any day ourselves. It took me awhile to figure out how to post pictures here as well, but it's not hard if you're able to save them as a small file. In your blog, go to file uploads, find the picture file you want, then copy the address in the box when it loads. Then go to your blog entry and hit the little picture button at the top and paste that address in the box that appears. Good Luck!
