ZOMG, they’re dropping them all over the yard!!!1!

Whoa. They turned a couple hundred pregnant ewes into the field behind the house over the weekend and let ’em go for it. I guess the farmer figured it was warm enough not to bother with the lambing shed (though there’s a cutting wind out there, poor little bastards).

Lambs are plopping out all OVER the place. Periodically, the farmer rounds up the mamas and behbehs and leaves behind the unripe ones.

All last night, we heard brand new lambs bleating. I got the biggest kick out of that — born into darkness, can you imagine their little faces when the sun came up?
