Sprinkles' Lambing (Video)

Watching an animal (or human for that matter) be born is always a marvelous sight. It doesn't matter how many times you witness it, it is amazing every time. This is one of the reasons why spring is such an exciting time on the homestead.

Birth, babies, and fresh starts..... It just doesn't get any better!

Basic Lambing Supplies


It is officially spring! 

And right on cue our ewes decided it was time to share their cute lambs! On Friday, March 11th, our Finn/Icelandic ewe, Sally, surprised us with twin ram lambs.

Why Sheep?


When we purchased this property we knew we wanted to add on livestock in order to produce our own meat and dairy. I had always assumed we would end up with a dairy cow and raise it's calf each year for meat. However, after doing lots and lots of research I kept coming back to sheep.
