Having Lambies in My Jammies

For a while now I have been making regular trips to the girl's shed to check on everyone and see if there are any new babies. Frequently in the middle of the night or early in the morning I go down in my jammies just to check on them.  This cold weather is really brutal on newborns.  Last night though, I just couldn't get to sleep and when I finally did, I slept like a log - all night.

First thing this morning, I threw on my work coat and boots and ran down to check on everyone and guess what?


Hazel surprised me with twins, even though I had told her it was fine to wait another day or two till the temps warmed up a bit.


The little ram lamb had some how slipped in between the stock panels that the lambing jug is made from and the piece of plywood that I have set up against it (to keep them from coming through the stock panel of course)  and gotten himself quite stuck.  He was ok, but rather chilled.


So in the house we came for a little warm up and a small bottle of colostrum.  Don't ya just love my polka dotted jammie pants?


Didn't take long and he was ready to go back to momma who took him right in and added to his breakfast.  Now, if it will just warm a bit before the other girls get busy.



  1. haha. Hazel didn't want to listen to you, did she? See, you aren't done having kids. You get up in the middle of the night in your jammies to check on babies. I LOVE it. so funny
