new life

Spring is obviously upon us, evident both from the inches (upon inches) of water that fell from the sky over the past few days, and the happy surprise waiting for us this evening in the barnyard (above), a beautiful new ewe lamb from our pretty ewe Alice, who will be named Gwenhywyfar. (We're going with a King Arthur's court theme -- Arthur has already been born on another farm and will be moving here when he's old enough.) I'll get better, less eye-glowy pictures of mom and babe tomorrow in the daylight.

And the fun won't stop there. There are more sheep to lamb, and we just set 60 duck eggs in the incubator. Stay tuned!

What on earth are you going to do with all of those ducks???!!!!

LOL, Carolyn! I'll sell most of them, I've got a fairly lengthy waiting list, and of course there's no way all 60 of them will hatch out -- after candling them tomorrow, I expect we'll have about 40 left, and then a certain percentage of those will not hatch. I'm hoping for about 30 ducklings when all is said and done.
