Lambing Saga Continues!

We're up to 10 lambs!  One ewe to go! 
Once again, here's a link to view new pictures.  Just scroll down to see the newest ones.
I don't think we've ever had this many lambs in such a short time.  Commercial flocks probably have that many lambs in an hour, but for small apples like us, it's hard to keep up with.  After Sierra, Sandi, Jackie, and Jenna were born last Friday (early AM, like middle of the night AM); Mary had a little lamb early Saturday morning.  This would be Shilo who needed a lactation consultant but once we got that straightened out is a strapping young lady.  Then Buttercup gave birth to her expected triplets.  They weren't crazy about coming out and Monte had to go in and get them.  All three were up and nursing no problem and mom has the milk and experience take care of them all.  However, Buttercup then developed a fever.  Not good!  I am happy to report that after a few days of penicillin she's back to her old sturdy self.  Thank you Lord!  I don't need 3 more house lambs!
So far, the lambing award would have to go to Lady Lu who delivered twins around 2pm Monday.  Yes, I said PM not AM.  It was a mild day and she delivered out in one of the sheds (no mess in the barn), without help, and the babies were up and nursing on their own without any sort of lactation guidance.  Welcome Jermain & Janel.
Hopefully Latte learned from Lady Lu and we'll end with a drama free lambing.
The Siera Saga cont.........She slept for 6 hours last night!  This little angel now sleeps in a cardboard box next to our bed at night.  She is quite fond of her box and it also doubles as a car seat for those trips to town.  Amazing what a difference sleeping in your own bed makes.  She is learning so much each day; such as what plastic bags taste and sound like, what cardboard tastes and sounds like, what electric cords taste like and thank goodness she has no teeth yet.  She has learned that while her dog Hope makes a great climbing toy, Sadie does not.  Lama's are fun to run and play with, but Sarah the hair sheep is not.  Following mom around all day is monotonous and it's exciting when her boy and her dad get home.  She also likes going in to dad's office for lunch so mom can run a few errands and she can entertain everyone there.  Today we'll be spending most of our time outside and hopefully she can make some new friends her own age and size.  The goal would be to have her living with these new friends in the barn.  This diaper changing is getting old real fast.  I'm also not sure how the MDA would feel about me taking her behind bars when I go.  That leads me to my last order of business for now...................
HELP!  I STILL NEED BAIL MONEY!  The Muscular Dystrophy Association is a great cause and ,because of my love for children, very close to my heart.  Every little bit counts and you can make a donation on line with no fuss, no muss, and no bother.  Just  click here to make a secure, online donation to further research and make the life of a child better.
We'd love to have you visit!
See ewe's soon.

Spring in Central Oregon.....

Spring in Central Oregon - If you don't like it, wait 15 minutes or drive 15 miles, it will change :-)
We still have a few openings for...........
Felt Bag - Saturday March 12th - 11:30-4pm - $35
Back by popular demand, Liz McDannold will be leading the way to turn unspun fiber into works of usable art.  Yes you can make a felt bag in one afternoon with Liz's entertaining instruction.  Great activity for a girls afternoon get away.
Shearing day Saturday March 19th - 11am
How would you like to lose 10-15 pounds in one day without diet or exercise?
Sorry, can't help you there, but you are invited to watch as our sheep go through this amazing transformation.  This is a free event with snacks available and fleeces for sale right off the sheep!    (Probably shouldn't use "snacks" and "fleece" in the same sentence, but what can I say.......We care about your fiber)
Fiber Market Day, Saturday March 26th 10-4 at the Crook County Fair grounds.
This free event is open to the public and promises to be fun for the whole family.  We will not be attending (see my next message as to why) but the shop will be open for any who would like to stop by on your way to or from the market.
Lambing - Could start as early as March 26th (see what I mean?)  Stay tuned and I'll send out birth announcements as we progress.  Here's praying for a safe and rewarding season.
Special offer on a Rose Spinning Wheel - We recently received a Rose spinning wheel from Majacraft in New Zealand.  Beautiful as she is and fabulous as she spins, she has a couple of small flaws.  These flaws do not affect the quality of her function, but would make her unique in a Rose family reunion.  Regularly priced at $885, this special Rose is available for $765 and comes with lace flyer, high speed whorl, and lazy kate.  Please contact me or come by the shop for more details.
Hope to see Ewe's soon!
