New Baby Ram

Brave Sheep's Baby: Mark
Brave Sheep had a baby ram sometime this morning before we came to do chores. He's healthy and sweet, but by tomorrow will likely be a wild thing that wants nothing to do with human contact. So, this morning I seized the moment to hold and pet him while his mom was busy eating. He took a little nap. I had to give him back when Brave Sheep came looking for him.

Yesterday we had a lot of steady rain which we really needed. It's good in that it gets rid of the dust, bad in that all the pens turn into mud messes churned up regularly by sharp hooves. We need real pastures. It's the only way I can think of that would prevent the dust or mud issue, but pastures take time to grow. Someday... Hopefully the rains will be steady and all those seeds I spread will dig in and flourish.
