For Sara...

My friend Sara (The Crazy Sheep Lady) down in Kentucky has had it rough this summer.  The heat and the drought have been hard on her flock.  Every one of her sheep has a name and a personality (they LOVE 'Nilla Wafers) and most have been hand raised by Sara.
They are her family.
But the drought has wreaked havoc on the grazing land for her sheep, changing the chemical make up of the grass and making some of her friends sick.
She lost Sherman the other day.
To cheer her up I thought I'd show her what we've been working on - it's her favorite thing in the whole world...
More lambs!
Yes, it's as much a surprise to me as it is to all of you, but we've never been known for a short lambing season.
We don't usually name our sheep but there have been the few who get names and never get sold such as, "Grandma", "The Cocker Spaniel", and "Chocolate And Vanilla Swirl".
Since we only have 3 lambs right now, they were bestowed with names.
You remember that The Cocker Spaniel lambed while we were gone?
Well, here she is with her new hair cut and her quick growing ewe lamb, "The Teddy Bear".
And then there was this surprise a couple of weeks ago.
The clever and self reliant, "Rabbit".
(she hops around like one)
Sorry.  She was too busy pretending to eat to smile for the camera.
Then, finally (we hope) there was the newest one born last Thursday, "The New Lamb Without A Name".
As always, they have 24 hour protection.
The lambs all send hugs, Sara.

What a great birthday greeting! Give 'em all hugs for being so well behaved for the photos. Looks like they all posed and knew who it for. ;-)

The "new lamb without a name" looks like a "Fleck" to me.
