It has been a busy month at the barn. I think around 20 lambs have been born since Christmas. They are so cute especially when they all get together and start running and jumping around. The ewes have done fairly well this year with their little ones. It’s amazing how protective the mothers can be of their young. I have seen this not only with the sheep but of the cows and the donkeys. It’s just natural for mothers to be this way.
Our donkeys are here for protection At one time we were having an issue with the coyotes but since the donkeys have been here we no longer are having that issue. They have so much personality and each one is different in their ways. They also run around and chase each other during the day. So at any given moment, you might see the donkeys running around or the sheep running around the pastures. It’s just part of the way farm animals behave. It does make you laugh though because they do it just for fun. So if you ever need a good laugh just go visit a farm and watch the animals for awhile, it might just brighten your day.
