Last of the lambs

So lambing is finished for 2019 at Whispering Pines.  Very pleased with this year's crop.  Here are the last lambs from this week.  We ended up with 20 lambs in total - even split between ram and ewe lambs.

Blue Sapphire x Rush Ewe and Ram lambs

Sansa x Rush Black Ram Lamb

Elara x Jon Snow White ewe

Elinor x Rush Black ram

Here is what happens when I go out to the barn now - the lambs remind me of that bird from the book, "Are you my mother?"

Are You My Mother? (ebook)

And more nice photos from the barn:

So wonderful! What a pretty new batch, I love Blue Sapphires twins with matching eye spots! Wow Mrs Patmore's girl already looks so big and sturdy compared to the newborns even though she's not that much older.

How nice to be popular in the barn, silly babies trying to nurse off your knees, but very cute! Can't wait to get back up there and meet them all
