Despite the frigid temps and snowy forecasts, spring has officially sprung here at the farm. Each year, Foundation staff begin to fidget with anticipation over the arrival of the new lambs and calves at the farm. With the lambing beginning first (mid to late February) followed by the calving in March, the birthing season is under way. So without further adieu, let me introduce…
The (first) Twins
The Un-named Baby
Currently there is a Facebook poll going on to give fans the chance to name this bundle of wool. The only rule is that the name must begin with the letter “N” to match the mother who is named Nicotina (and for accurate breeding record keeping.) So far we have some great names to choose from including Nahla, Nadia, Nanette, Narnia, and Natasha. Check out the post here and let us know what name you would give this precious little ewe (girl).
Soon the new lambs will be joined by more lambs (and calves too!), and within a few weeks they may be seen frolicking in the barnyard. Until then, here are more adorable photos for your viewing pleasure.
