Lamb, Lambs, Lamb, Lambs...

Flowers and trees will be the theme for 2012 lambs...

Tuesday, April 3- Hidaway Farms Lucy with Mapleton Thunder gave us a fine strapping boy...Birch 

 Friday, April 6- Hidaway Farms April began labor around 10 am...not much progression was being made...reminiscent of a lambing past...a trip to the vet and a c-section later produced these two lovelies above...a first time mom...two bottle lambs...all are well. The ram lamb (on left) is Huckleberry (Huck) and his little sister (on right) is Carolina Rose (Rosie).
 That night at the 10 o'clock feeding, Hidaway Farms Lightning produced this dark brown ewe lamb, Laurel...easy lambing for this first time mom...thank you, Lord! All 3 lambs on April 6th were sired by Mapleton Thunder.
 Our first lamb, Black-eyed Susan is growing up to be a very nice and friendly young lady much to her mother's chagrin!

...And we had Easter lambs!! Coming soon...Lily and Hickory...

They all look wonderful! Good luck with your bottle babies; I have some to this year and my parents enlisted themselves to help me.

Thank you so much, Cary. We are really enjoying the lambs this year.

Lots of fun with lambs, Nancy.

Even though the bottle lambs require more work they are wonderful! How many do you have, Voni? My two daughters and I are working with them.

We had twins born early this morning and have one more ewe to go. New pictures hopefully tomorrow!
