Spring Lambs

3/24 – first peeper toads heard at night. Nothing can hold us back now. The light is lasting longer and the sun is stronger. We are heading into the new season. New buds on trees, new green shoots in the garden. So it must also be time for lambs.

I captured Hanni for a quick brunch and a trip to Earth Haven Farm to see the new crop of babies. There is nothing like a bunch of ruminates to put a smile on that girl’s face! I will admit,  my jaw began to hurt from grinning at the baby sheep.

Here was my take on the day. I stole a couple of Hanni’s shots and noted them as such.

Ms. Hildie appeared to have no youngin’s of her own and obviously was chosen to be the official Greeter and tour director. I’m guessing the other ewes nominated her to keep an eye on us and distract us from their babies. But we just HAD to pick a few up and cuddle them…

We wandered down the road to see if there were any new Beeffalo. These girls were much more shy and it took some serious cajoling to get them to come to us.

This shot of Hanni’s takes the prize for cuteness overload!

How appropriate with Easter the next day!

  1. Somehow I doubt even lambs enjoy cuddling. Sheep are funny creatures. But they are adorable to look at. Looks like fun.

  2. Truly cute, Martha. I couldn’t have resisted the cuddling. We just drove out to the Lexington horse farms to see all the new foals. There was no cuddling, but they sure were fun to watch. ~Terri
