Its raining, its pouring, the old man is snoring......
Our ewes are definitely not snoring, thats for sure. This change in the weather (ie. downpour) has brought on lambing hardcore. At lamb check last night there were 15 new lambs and 6 more ewes starting to lamb! Its a busy time for sure, but being well into the lambing season is one of my favorite times of year. And conveniently it happens three times a year!
On another exciting note, Kyle Farms would like to welcome a new addition to the farm! The third generation of Kyle Farms is now made up of Nate and Kelly's son, Jameson (born late December), and DJ and Alexis' new daughter, Emma (born this morning)! Everyone is doing well, and we all look forward to putting the next generation of sheep farmers to work! :-D
Its definitely the season for new birth at Kyle Farms, as our farm manager's border collie has puppies by our dog, Pete, on the ground now, and a local dairy's border collie is expecting puppies by Pete this week! Pictures to be posted as available. In the meantime here's some pictures of the puppies already on the ground!
Puppies at 3 weeks old
And of course the happy father, waiting for a belly rub!
