A Second Lamb Guess!

Our purebred Finnsheep, Honeycomb, is due to lamb in about a week or so! We wanted to get some pictures of her, so Evelyn and I headed out to the barn.

Blackberry and Currant were easy to lead out.

Aren’t I cute?

The warm, sunny day made for a frisky lamb!

And of course, the cat had to come inspect.

Timid little Apple didn’t want to leave the barn even to get some corn.

But our subject for today was Honeycomb. With a little coaxing, she followed Evelyn out of the barn and was rewarded with some corn.

After a while, Honeycomb got curious and venture farther.

She certainly looks pregnant! How many lambs do you think she’ll have? And will they be ewe lambs or ram lambs? (Just a hint, Finnsheep normally have more than one lamb at a time, though not always.)

Hey, what about me!?

Still Winter

Winter is hanging on in Quebec this year! Here are a few photos from this morning.

The blue spruce had only just emerged from being completely buried in snow and now it was dusted over again! Notice the high snowbanks against the cedar hedge. Yes, the snow really is still over 3 feet deep in places! It is beautiful, though! And spring is around the corner as the presence of our growing little bunnies keeps reminding us.

Anyone looking for a cute Easter bunny? Or just a friendly pet? Or maybe a mischievous one!

Announcing…

Lamb Update

Black Currant is growing quickly! Today we had to put in her ear tags (Quebec law for all livestock), but we thought we’d take some pictures of her first. Blackberry and Currant are so friendly they had no hesitation about following us out of the barn.

And of course the cat was around too… Snow is a new taste for Currant and the freezing rain yesterday made the driveway a field of broken ice. How does the cat always manage to get in the picture!

Since Currant is 4 weeks old today, we also wanted to weigh her. So we brought her and Blackberry up to the house.

This is a nice-looking house… Anybody home? And then it was time to return to the barn.

The cat decided to join in the race! And the winner is……but that wasn’t fair – Blackberry slid on the ice.

‘Till next time!
