Well this is a new one

We have one of "Those neighbors". If it's not his long horn cattle busting through our fence to eat the grass then it's their pig chasing my sheep. He also has a long list of dogs that roam the country side and chase cars. When we first moved here we befriended them. We sold them hay for their animals. Which we never did get paid for.

This morning this motley crue showed up for coffee.

No doubt they were just looking for food.
No wonder my dogs were losing their minds in the middle of the night.

Learning the ropes

Bear is learning what the lambs are all about.
Guardian dogs don't just know what to do they have to learn the rules.

Head down but still a little to forward for mom's liking

Really avoidance is the best policy.

He is only aloud with the new lambs when we are out there.
Now that he knows what is going on he sits by the gate waiting for us to let him in.

Is that Placenta in your hair

Yes, folks it is that time again. Lambing is upon us. Time to wonder if you washed your hands after picking up the latest born. Then remember you tried to get that hair out of your mouth with your hands. But hey I hear that people in LA and New York pay good money to put placenta creme on their face. If that is the case then my hands are going to be baby soft.  Yesterday started with a bang. Twins born as the southern Alberta wind started blowing and a dumb mother who failed to dry off her babies. Twins were brought into the house and put under the watchful eyes of our Chi Joe. Of course my camera died yesterday so I only have a bad cell phone pic of the cuteness. At the end of yesterday we had a total of 17 lambs. Nice start. Now we are on a roll nothing came last night or this morning. Boring.
The camera has new batteries now so cute pics to come.
