It's been awhile .......................

Hmmm, been a month + since I posted, lots going on, cousin and his wife were here for 5 days, one daughter came to visit for 4 days, sick for a week, and then cousin was back for 2 days.  Add this to cold weather, new lambs, and issues with my truck, replacing one piece at a time, new battery, new starter, new alternator, getting a new truck one piece at a time.
Single little ram lamb born Nov.  22.

Snow last Saturday morning, was supposed to snow at 500 ft. but it is at about 1500, I like to look at it but glad it is up higher, I am at 463 ft.

Didn't see one ewe when I was feeding, found her with her lambs down in the ditch out of the wind, hmm, 2 more ram lambs.  Out of the last 5 lambs, 4 are rams.  Hope those stats change when it is time for the Shetlands to lamb.

And now wearing sleeves from an old sweatshirt and bedded down in the stock trailer.


Still debating about pulling out Christmas decorations, as much as I like them, it will be time to put them away so soon, but I will dig out some.
Hope everyone is staying safe, warm and dry,
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays.


  1. It's been snowy and COLD here too :/
    Congrats on the new babies!
    Merry Christmas to you and your family!

  2. i had been wondering about you. then i saw you comment recently and hoped you'd post to give us an update. glad you're feeling better - but always your hands are full. :)

  3. Cold here in Florida for the past two days.

    Love the new lambs. They look very content in their sleeves. We will start kidding season in March. and maybe piggies in February. Still don't know for sure if Miss Piggy is in a piggy way.

    Merry Christmas to all of you!

  4. Oh Christmas lambs, how cute are they in the sleeves....Blessings Francine.

  5. Good to see a new post. But we'll give you an excused absence since it seems you've been plenty busy. Sorry to hear you had a week of not feeling good.

    Your scenery (even with brown grass) is lovely. To see those mountains everyday . . . :o}

    Good thing those little critters weren't born here. They would be in our kitchen!

  6. Good to hear from you again. Such cute little babies. See you're still brown and dry. Does is get real cold for you there? Little guys look adorable in the sleeves.


  7. I'm sending you the Little Lucky Farm Female Mojo vibes for your Shetlands... Glad you're getting some moisture finally - even if it is snow. Nice looking lambs! I have yet to put up my Christmas decorations, but I may be forced to, as we're in for a winter storm this weekend.

  8. I put out a couple of wreaths, that's it for decorating. That's just time and energy I haven't got to spare.
    Praying for Shetland ewe lambs.

  9. I love it when there are photos of little ones to see. Your scenery is fantastic! And I had to smile at the last about the Christmas ornaments. So true!

  10. That first little lamb is precious, looks just like mommy. Merry Christmas to you and yours.
