Lambs are a comin' (25 Days till Spring)

When ewes have their lambs, shepherds place the new mom and babes in a small stall called a jug for 1 or 2 days. This gives the ewe time to recover and bond well with her lambs. We have 2 jugs available but can make more if we need to.

This is Barbara. She was a little gimpy this morning acting a bit off so out of caution, we put her in the jug. As of this evening, she is no longer gimpy but is looking much closer to lambing. Keep your fingers crossed she can hold off until the temperature comes back up above zero!
