Lambing started on the 5th with North Star Iduna & Minwawe Magnolia both lambing. Iduna having a single ram, and Maggie with twin ewes. On the 6th, Bejig had a single ewe lamb. On the 7th, Justalit'l Marion had a single ewe lamb. We skipped a day, and on the 9th, Cornet and Polka both went. Cornet with TWIN GULMOGET EWES! That are absolutely amazing. And Polka with a black ewe lamb. On the 10th, Torrent, Konnel and Wendy all went. Torrent had twins, a gulmoget ram and katmoget ewe. Konnel had a black ram, and wendy had a black ewe. Skipped a day again, and on the 12th, Olga, Kimia and Jasmine went. Olga with a single ewe, Kimia with black ones of each, and Jasmine with a gullie ram. Then on the 13th we were suprised with Charm, our crossbred ewe, giving us triplets! Our first set of triplets on the farm! And ever since its' been FRICKING COLD out. 2 inches of snow today. Shearing went off without a hitch on Thursday, but, with this snow, I feel SO bad for everyone! One of our alpacas came down with pneumonia, but the whole day was particularly stressful for them as they all got moved around and all put in with the sheep.
Last night, our Babydoll had twins, and they're doing well out in the snow today. Chalemeaux had twins today, and it sounds like Lyra also had a single. We're headin gout to the farm today to take photos and get some more wind blocks up for everyone. Big fat Glenmore March Madness is in the barn because she looks as big as a house, and was quite cold the other night after shearing. She should be carrying AT LEAST twins sired by Lightning McQueen.
Other than that, everything is peachy in the frozen hell of Minnesota. Had a rough start to the day, some bad news, but that means everything else can look up right? Oh, and our wedding favors are being shipped today! Yay! Just a week over five months left til the wedding! AAAHHH!!! I keep telling him we should elope, I just feel bad throwing all this money into dresses and tux's and chairs and an officiant and everything. Not sorry about my dress, as I probably would have purchased one anyway, but yeah. Maybe just prewedding jitters? Who knows.
Wedding is my theme, since we're getting married this fall. I have 84 key words so far, but I want more, as I don't particularly like some of these, and there will be others I'm sure I like better. Please give me your suggestions!
