Everything is soup with grass outside; well beyond our usual jello with grass consistency.
Discovered I need new rubber boots....the hard way.
The ram is feeling "rammy" today - showing off his male-ness. I think Aubrey the ewe is possibly in heat. He doesn't like getting locked in at night, even though he doesn't necessarily want to go out in the rain, either. Life must be somewhat confusing.
Dodie still hasn't lambed, even though when we bought her we were told it would be just a few weeks. I was trying to look at her udder today - looks a little bit bagged up, but couldn't get a good long long. My sheep are Blackbelly Barbados, and, well, their bellies are black - hard to distinguish. I need to trap her in a corner and get a good look. She's had several births with no problems; I am praying for the same here. I am not relishing trying to help her with one hand and the other trying to hold the flashlight and the book that tells me how!
This is a good day for soup-making, baking, and watching Poppy play games with the kids - what a patient man! I want to be Poppy when I grow up (only, you know, Grammy, instead).
