Little Lambs

I held off posting for awhile thinking that these little bundles of joy were going to arrive in time for Easter.  They ended up being 7 days late.  Of course, they waited until I started a 44 hour week at work to make their appearance!  Anyways... Farmerboy called me at 9:10 pm  on April 7th to let me know that his ewe Lego had given birth to twin girls.  Thankfully, there were no complications
Lego is such a kind and gentle soul and a wonderful Mom. :) 

Let Farmerboy proudly introduce you to Leah... a jet black little sweetie

 and her sister Lucy... She is sporting white on her inner ears and muzzle.

Leah is a little escape artist already... extremely curious.  The pen had to be lamb proofed for fear she would sneak in with her father who lives to head butt everything.  Her favorite hangout is the grain bin.  Of course, Lucy is never far from her sister.  They are both getting plenty of attention from their Mom and their caretakers!

Farmerboy is guessing that they will mellow into a grey color as they age.  We are still awaiting Ariel's baby or babies.  I pray that everything goes as smooth as these little one's arrivals. :)

Thanks for stopping by Lara... They are the closest reminders to Spring that we have in Northern Illinois right now! ;)
