Baby Lambs

Two tears ago the children got Raymond and Randy each a lamb for their birthday. So as it goes with all other things these lambs to grew up and have now become full grown. Last week we had the joy of seeing one of the ewes kid. Not only did she have one lamb but gave birth to three healthy little lambs. Each lamb weighed about 8 pounds and was just a nice handful for the boys.We had never experienced anything so small having babies. ( Cows calving is totally different) But the nice thing about lambs is that they are so gentle and not aggressive so the children can be right there in the pen and not have to fear about getting run over. We were so thankful to have a neighbor close by who came over right away and gave us some helpful hints and different things to watch for in the little ones. Love, is a first time mother but she sure takes good care of her little family and so far is able to nurse each one of them. The children have the baby bottles ready for when the time will come that she won't have enough milk for them all.

The Ewe's name is Love. So they decided to name her offspring Joy,Peace and Hope. The ram is Longsuffering. So once the other ewe has her little ones they want to continue with the "Fruits of the Spirit"

They are so cute! I love the pictures thanks for sharing them with us. I wish I had a lamb:) The pictures remind me of the verse where the lion lays down with the lamb.

Happy Easter
