If I am home all day I turn the Dorper Ewes and Lambs out into the pastures. In the evenings, they have biological clocks that tell them it is feeding time or if I am early the sound of the mule brings them all to the pen. They will either be standing by the feeders or next to the gate, waiting for me to fill the feeders. I make sure to count all the lambs (several times sometimes) to be sure they are all in the pen before I close the gate. Tuesday night all the lambs were in the pen, no problem. The dogs were over at the falling down barn barking which they usually do when the cat is in the rafters, didn't think a thing about it. Well Wednesday morning when I went out the let the ewes out one of the was already out ... must have been her hiding out in the barn .... and she had lamb number 14 by her side, a little ram. Need to count ewes and lambs when I close the gate.

To every one on the east coast suffering from the weather, it was 83 degrees here on Wednesday and in the 60's yesterday, cooling down really fast, sunny today with big white clouds over the Sierras.
