Lambing has begun

Horatio (as in Hornblower) born to Rachael and Cornelius. Unfortunately, she is not registered, so he will be going to the meat market. Unless, of course, someone wants to buy an unregistered pure Horned Dorset.............



Since this was her first lambing, and she seemed to be struggling, Jerry helped to ease out the lamb. And since I was calming her, I did not get any during pictures..... We took off her coat as he was getting hung up in the leg straps. Now that he knows where the udders are, I can put a clean coat on her.

The lamb is so CUTE! Just makes you want to cuddle him. I like the name Horatio. If it weren't an awfully, long way to NH I would be tempted to take him from you. My kids would adore him.

While we are looking for a ram, we are in South Carolina. And that is way too much trouble to get a ram from state to state.....

Peter, If you wanted to pay for gas in the Subaru to and from South Carolina..........we might consider it.

Thank you Tabitha. He has turned into a slight cuddle bug. But, only when I need to pick him up for ewes running in or out of the barn.
