The Rest of Our Lambs
Our Easter babies on April 8th were a nice surprise! Hidaway Farms Aurora and Rare Find Farm Cory are the proud parents. Above is Lily enjoying her new world. Below is Aurora with Lily lying down and Hickory standing.
Then on Wednesday, April 11th, Aurora's sister, Stormy, gave us Juneberry and Cedar. Cory is the sire of these two as well. If you notice, the colors and patterns are almost identical except the sex of the lambs is different. Aurora has a katmoget ewe and a moorit ram. Stormy has a moorit ewe and a katmoget ram (below).
Our last lambs to arrive came on Thursday, April 12th, to Hidaway Farms Abigail and Mapleton Thunder. Abby delivered two ewe lambs. Orchid is a moorit and white yuglet sokket, and Violet is moorit with a white frame around her face.
Below are resting lambs, Orchid and Violet.
Couldn't resist some more pictures of our bottle lambs, Rosie and Huck.

Huck, standing beside Katie like a good baby...
And Katie with Black-eyed Susan who is growing like a weed!
