I was just about to post the following stuff last night when I lost my internet connection. It's back now. And Jitterbug is in labor as we speak. I've been out watching her since before it was light this morning.
We are going to be into the lambing season again any time now. Around here March comes in like a lamb and goes out like a lion, so it would be nice if the lambing would happen now while it is calm before the annual end of March storms show up. Jitterbug, a La Mancha goat, is due and will kid very soon. She bagged up today, so I think we will have La Mancha babies by tomorrow. She didn't really want her picture taken though.
Maybe I'll introduce you to some of the other critters here. This is Outlaw, one of the Navajo-Churro rams, and Leia, who is Amidala's daughter from last year. I don't know if you can tell, but Outlaw is brown (sheep fade as they age, especially brown ones). Some of our ewes are daughters of a brown ram, so they carry the gene for that color, but we have not been able to get any ewe lambs that are brown so far. Outlaw's job is to help us with that. I like all of the colors, but I like to have variety and brown, or moorit, is hard to get very much of.
I did tell you there would be a picture of the green sweater. This is where it was yesterday morning, and it has progressed a little since then but doesn't look much different.
