spring is headed our way!

what's in there??? (notice that wide load!)

i'm too big to peek over...what did you see????

a little black lamb...

and his mama staring back at me!

this is peppermints second year of lambing. she had a black lamb last year on the spring equinox. so, having lambs on january 12 threw us for a loop. she had twins, the other black as well, with white markings, but he was born outside in single digit weather and froze to death. if i had known she was going to lamb so early this year, i would have been more watchful. so far, none of the other ewes have shown any sign of lambing.
