It's Spring! Coldernell, and zipper-deep in snow, but I just towelled off and dipped my first lambs of the year. Teeny (aka Old Dependable) dropped a pair of ewe lambs about half an hour ago. Mom and little 'uns doing fine...

Hey, bit early fer lambing ain't it? Sheep in my flock were pretty frustrated when the shepherdess kept the boys from the girls until December... Gonna be late Aril 'fore I see any new lambs to watch over!

Well, I've been told that primitive breeds like my Shetlands do better lambing in cold weather. Stimulates the lambs to nurse. Always worked well for me, never lost a lamb to chilling.

Also has 'em ready for the butcher in October, before I have to start putting hay out for 'em.

Mine are shetlands too - but we don't want 'em dropping them in snowbanks - might loose the little ones! This is Michigan - we try to shear them early April, and lamb late April.... Besides, there's not enuff meat on 'em to be hardly worthwhile!

I work at an equipment rental store. Every woodsplitter we own is reserved for the weekend. Lots of folks running outta fahrwood, I'd say.
