The new boys

They've made it 8 hours...we'll hope they do well tonight. They appear okay. I saw some tail wiggling while at the udder [ asign they are getting milk].

When I saw these pictures, I was quite amused at their expressions. Amazing how they adapt.

Is it my imagination... or are these lambs smiling?

Katherine Dunn/Apifera Farm said...

I just love the expressions- little impish grins. Like, "Hey, look at me.." Still, hoping they do okay in next day or so. They seem okay at this stage.

Karen Deborah said...

they are smiling. ahh contentment.

Oooh, they are so sweet! I hope they make it. What kissy faces they have :)

They certainly look happy, I hope they'll be okay, they're too cute not to be.

Oh aren't babes this time of the year just precious? And they really are smiling! Sounds like lambs birthing and taking care of their young is very similar to goats (which I've been a midwife to many times). There's nothing like assisting a mother in the time of need, I think the animal knows your helping. Can't wait for more pictures!

Love the smiles! I want to scritch their little noses.

Such beautiful babies... sweet angels.

I am so so sorry to hear about this little one you loss... as I write this, it brings tears to my eyes thinking of the life that was not meant to be... hard to accept.. yet still it has touched your heart forever.... remembering even the littlest lamb.
