Babies!!

Winter is still in full swing around here (the dogs are in heaven!), but our mamas on the farm don't care: They have started having babies!
Last week we welcomed Fire, our first lamb of the season. 

His legs are black, except for a little spot on his left back foot that is white, just like our late Morgan horse Fire.
See the little white spot on his left foot?

Fire was a very special horse, and we were sad to lose him a year and a half ago. This little boy has the same markings, so he got the same name. He's a spunky little guy, so we think the name fits him perfectly!

Tom Snow is intrigued by the new addition
Our dogs are livestock guardians, they would never hurt our sheep or goats. Besides, the mamas are transformed from easy-going, docile sheep to brave mama bears with the courage of lions, and protect their babies fiercely. 

We also get baby bunnies year round, and just found a nest with 10 new babies:
Rich and Nina checking for babies
Found one - a day old!
This couple is still in love, but we think their baby making days are over - they fit right into the retiree community around here. 
 Never too old to enjoy food. Yum!

Life is good on the farm. I hope it's good for you, too!


P.S. If you sign up for my newsletter, you will be the first to learn of new announcements. I have a big one planned for next week, don't miss out!

  1. I love that the dogs love it there. Baby Fire is so cute! And the bunny is cute in a creepy way. It'll be ridiculously cute soon. :)

    1. They look like little aliens when they are just born, don't they? All naked and blind, poor little babies ... but like you said, it doesn't take long for them to grow their fur and get so adorable it almost hurts ;-)
      Bear is having the time of his life here. I'm so happy that he finally gets to live in the climate he was made for. I swear, he comes up to us daily to thank us that we brought him here. It's so great!

    1. So do we! Having new babies is one of the best parts about living on a farm.
