While stacking hay at work one day, Stephen came across four “orphaned” kittens. The mother was probably still alive somewhere, but the hay wagon he was unloading came from a different farm. So it seemed the best option to bring them home and feed them. Sarah and Evelyn (and sometimes others if they are available) have been doing this very faithfully many times a day.
Here is what the 1st of May looks like in Quebec.
Honeycomb lambed today – a very quick delivery! Evelyn had just checked on her at 2 p.m. and when I went out at 4 p.m., there were two little lambs standing under her drinking! Apparently they didn’t need any help!
Apple surprised us yesterday evening by lambing! We thought she was due in three weeks, but I guess we were wrong.
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.
The warm, sunny day made for a frisky lamb!
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.)
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.

Congratulations Nathanael and Samantha! We are praising the Lord for the new little life He has entrusted to you. You are in our prayers as you strive faithfully to bring up your little daughter in the nurture and admonition of the Lord.
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.
