New Spots At Cedar Pond
Look! Another new lamb was born here a few days ago.She is her mother's first lamb.
Cedar Pond's Saffron has a little girl lamb I have named Sesame. It is nice having some new woolly spots around here.Her flock mates, all the other lambs, are getting pretty big now and their mothers are weaning them . I can hear the lambs bawling and baaing mournfully as they stuff their mouths with alfalfa. Poor lambs. Actually, poor Moms. To see the ram lambs almost as big as their moms, with horns that are at least 6 inches long, ram their mom's udders to bring down milk is a painful sight to behold, and I think the moms are instinctively wise to wean their lambs.
