Twelve Lambs

Twelve baby lambs have arrived. There are five more Mama sheep yet to give birth.  On Easter Sunday, the barn will be filled  with our friends from the cities coming to visit the lambs. There is something real special about this.

Special Guests

We had such a great time hosting Dr. Jack and Mrs. Hatcher in our home.  They got a taste of “country living”. They held our new born lambs and picked the eggs. It was so good to review and relive old Christ For the Nations memories. It was even better to minister with them. Hope […]

Triplet lambs were born this afternoon. Next came another single lamb. Mother Ewes and babies all doing fine. My big dogs (Great Pyrenees) are happy to have something else to guard.  A hot shower is a beautiful thing. It is not good for me to smell like sheep!

Lamb Progress

Any minute now, the lambing could begin. I will be checking the barn every two hours. The Mother sheep have fresh straw, water and hay. Some of the ewes are “bagging up” and they will be the first to be put into the jugs to await their babies.   I received my first deposits on the […]
