Farmer K and Surprise
Yesterday morning, Farmer K told me there was a lamb in with the sheep. Since I had recently moved our first round of lambs to another pen for easier access and to keep them from interbreeding, I figured I was up for some fence repair. I counted my lambs and all six were there.

"Are you sure?" I called back, wondering if someone had snuck an animal onto our ranch.

"Yes, Mom. A lamb. A tiny one."

Well, that was a whole different story entirely. Mama Sheep had popped out a little baby ewe. We had no idea she was pregnant again. That lady wastes no time. Meet her lamb who we named Surprise.
