New lambs for Christmas…. The shepherd boy caught one of his baby lambs and brought it up to the house for everyone to ooohhh and ahhh over.  Newborn lambs are so sweet!

Christmas Lambs

We switched out our ram at the beginning of the year.  Our new ram looks nice enough but as we approached the end of the year, we were really wondering if he worked or not.  Our worries were relieved when…
