I couldn’t keep myself from driving back out to the FARM yesterday to see how the new baby was doing ~ and to see if mama had a second baby as the caretaker felt she likely would.
I was the only one there when I arrived soon after sunup. All the sheep from Saturday had been moved except for two mamas, their young and a couple of onlookers.
It was easy to spot the new baby and his mama from yesterday and it appeared likely a sibling of his – no way to know for certain as I saw no one to ask. Regardless, all was well ~ complete silence in the early morning fog and cold, babies cuddled and snuggled tightly together to mom and each other in the thick hay. The new baby I witnessed being birthed was easy to recognize as he and mom were still attending to newborn care….
After observing them for a bit I left quietly ~ I saw the little lamb was doing extremely well and receiving complete attention and care from his mom. His tiny legs didn’t disappoint him yesterday ~ with continued efforts to stand, he was looking very steady and strong this morning.
