Quilt With Us

Happy Super Bowl Sunday!   All 3 of my sons (and DIL) came home today to watch the game together, it's nice to have the whole family here! 

I'm making some progress on the quilt I began last August, maybe I'll have it done by August 2014!  

I wanted to share some other exciting news at our house!  Yesterday I came home from town, looked out in the pasture and saw a set of newborn  twin lambs!  As I got closer to look, I saw another ewe and she had a set of twin lambs, too!  What a way to welcome February!

Here they are......

Those are some cute  lambs! (I've never seen any that weren't though). Enjoy watching them grow.

How cute!

They are adorable.  Never heard of this type.  All I have ever seen are the wooly ones.  In the picture they resemble goats.  Very pretty.

Carol, wool sheep breed when the fall rains set in, their gestation period is 5 months, so lambs are born anywhere between Nov - Feb. These lambs are Barbados Blackbelly breed. They can lamb at any time and even two lambings in one year. The reason we raise Blackbellys is because they are easy keepers. They are a hair sheep, no shearing required. They do not need their tails bobbed or the usual vaccines needed for wool sheep. We do worm them, but they are much easier to manage than wool sheep. I always get so excited during lambing season. I've always had a love for sheep....it never gets old!

Such cute lambs. Congratulations.  Quite a day -- new lambs, your family home, and a SEAHWAWKS WIN!

I've always wondered (not being a farm person) WHY lambs are born in this time of the year (mid-winter)?  It seems so cold and inhospitable for babies!  That being said, these lambs are adorable -- what breed?  The black markings seem different from lambs in this area.
