Between Valentine's Day night and the fifteenth, we had our last set of twin lambs. Two boys. It's sad that lambing season is already over with, but we had fun. 
I will get pics on here as soon as possible! 
In total, we've had 13 lambs born: 8 boys and 5 girls. 
Boys: Jasper, Emmett, Carl, Eddie, Jake, Charlie, and the final set of twin boys.
Girls: Kaylee, Jada, Nettie, Alice and Jamie.
*My lambs are Jada and Nettie, from ewe Sarah.
*Jasper and Emmett are from ewe July, Carl and Eddie from Yo-Yo, Jake and Jamie from Medora, Charlie and Alice from Keyley, Kaylee from Velvet, and the last two from Chloe.
During the week when I attend college, I get a bit lonely in missing my ewe and my little lambs. I'm nearly twenty-one years old now, and it's so cool how one could love family and animals so much. I especially love God and thank him every day for these wonderful blessings in my life.
Better go. I have a cough I'm trying to get rid of, and for some reason, when I type, it influences the tickle in my throat. 
Ta!! :)

Hey everybody!
Last Friday, when I came home, there was a ewe in labor. Now I've seen just about everything
with labor from breached lambs to any other sorts of lambs. This day, it wasn't too much to be
expected. The ewe already had a lamb, and was making circles around it while she licked it.
This meant that she was in labor for the second lamb. I could also tell this because of the second
water bag coming out. That's the cool part. The water bags are always in different colors. I think it's
sort of neat. It's like they're color coded or something. Haha.
Well anyways, there was a damp, black girl lamb already born. Then, the ewe laid down and
began to push the second one out. They do that by having their noses high in the air. It's really painful
to watch, because you feel bad for what they're going through. The lamb was white and black and almost
all the way out when she stood up with it hanging down. It was a funny sight because it began to shake its
little head so hard that it plopped to the ground. Ouch, huh? But it was funny. We had a boy and a girl lambs
and they were all right. The mama didn't have milk for them, though, until two hours later. The afterbirth
has to drop before there could be milk in the utter. The lambs were so hungry by then. This doesn't always happen
with mama ewes. Sometimes the afterbirth drops immediately. Every ewe is different.
But they're okay. And we have two more ewes to have babies. I'm betting on one having three because
of how big she looks. But alas, first and foremost, the lambs need to be healthy. That's the most important
thing. Wish us luck on the final two. Please pray for them. Thanks!
***Here are the lambs we have now from ewes July, Velvet, Sarah, Yo-Yo, and Keyley: Emmett and Jasper, Kaylee,
Jada and Nettie (mine), Carl and Eddie, and Charlie and Alice.

Ta!! :)

Hey, everybody. Well, we're getting more lambs. Our latest addition is ewe Yo-Yo's twin boys Carl and Eddie. I'd post pictures, but I need to get them on the digital camera, and that's a lot of work. I just don't have time for that right now. But as soon as I do, I'll get them on here or on Facebook. So HA if you don't have a Facebook account. Maybe now is the time to get one.
Just kidding.
My week has been very busy. Each professor I have at college seems to think that I'm going to have time for all that reading for the class, plus reading for fun, plus watching my favorite TV shows, plus writing my books, plus reading the Bible. That's a lot to squeeze in one week, let along a day! But I keep plugging along, neglecting homework as usual and dreading to finish the latest book I'm reading for fun. I have like three hundred pages left, so maybe I'll finish it in March during spring break. I also have about 8 books left to read. They're not that long, only 200 pages at the most. But I wanna READ!! 
Beyond all that, I read the paper, do crosswords to again neglect homework, and today I have an appointment so I won't be going to 2 classes. HA! 
Please comment and let me know how I can be able to get all this done better. Maybe I need to stop thinking about the terrifying movie that I watched in one of my classes. Bad stuff in there. 
Well anyways...wish me luck. I'm already surprised I had time to write in here! 
Ta! God bless! :)
