Meet the lambs

Earlier this week I just happened to notice in the newspaper that one of the local farms, Wolston Farm, was welcoming the public out to their farm to meet the lambs.

Always up for a good "aahhh" moment, I made a mental note to put in on the calender for a week-end adventure.

To say the very least, we were not disappointed. The little lambs were so sweet. Some were old enough to be out toddling in the pen with there mamas, and others like the one week old little guy above (Boyd Crowder) were in the barn.

There was even a pair of twins that had been born that morning, Mocha and Latté, but it was too dark in that part of the barn to do them justice with a picture.

They played like they had been friends forever. Each area had mountain of hay. Apparently one of their favoring games is king of the hill.

The mama sheep kept a close eye on her babies and if they strayed too far, she would call them back. However, most of the time, they stayed pretty close to her.

Frequent snacks were a must.

Oh man, I'm sorry I missed it. Saturday was kind of busy though, so probably better that I didn't have yet one more thing to plan on doing. The little lambs are just so adorable.

Living in New Zealand and having spent 24 years living on a small farmlet (40 acres) and working in the wool industry I've seen a LOT of sheep and lambs and these are pretty darn cute.

Aww! I feel a touch of nostalgia! I grew up on a farm and we had sheep there until I was about twelve years old. Spring lambs just have a way of putting a smile on your face!

Bunny says that is nothing like those ornery llamas we met on Saturday!
