I am a great grandmother!!!! Lizzies' sheep Phoenix had twins this morning, a little girl and a little boy. They haven't figured out their feet yet, but in a couple of days they will be spRINGing around. About 3 kgs each, but they haven't been weighed. I didn't weigh my babies when they were born either, (and sheep have wool, not scales) I had the 2 boys at home. Phoenix brought them forward to Liz so proudly, and offered them for cuddles. She is so tame. Emily is tame too, and about ready to drop, and Other One is not tame, was not a reject, so was not hand reared. She also is ready to drop. Her ram is very tame, he was a reject, and has grown to be the best ram in the district according to the other farmers. Isn't it wonderful, isn't it amazing, isn't it exciting.

Don't y'all just love a beautiful spring lamb roast???

I grew up on a farm in New Hampshire and we raised all of those wonderful creatures to slaughter and freeze for those cold winter comfort dinners---huge family!!! I was always extremely upset when we lost one of my favorite pets that I had hand fed and nurtured----still won't do the veal thing!!

Dale---pictures would be awesome---baby anything are soo very cute and cuddly---do you shear on your farm?? New Zealand lamb is supposed to be the BEST in the world!!! (Next to the Kiwis, of course!!)

LOL we don't have a farm, we only have six acres +. You can look at it on Martynsfield.co.nz Shane can sent some pictures to Billy, who can Post them. But not until Lizzies birthday on the 5th. She has a house, and twenty acres way out in the wop wops. About an hour from here.

Billy m' darlin' I would never make you eat anything you don't care for, But you might try a frenched lamb cutlet for me. You said the mere smell made you ill, but there is no smell to speak of. Truly. Maybe you would like it coated in fresh breadcrumbs with chopped rosemary and mint.

How adorable little lambs are!! They are certainly born with "springs" in their little feet. Special little creatures they are...enjoy those little bundles for me, as I have fond memories of the little stinkers!

Don't wait too long to tell someone you love them.
