We Met Willow and Her Babies!

Good Morning sweet ladies, wish you were here with!!!!!!!

Yesterday did not go as I had planned.......the fact that I am on vacation this week helped though. So many times when I am working I have to cram so much into my weekends, so I am always feeling like I am pressed. Anyway the girls and I worked really had getting Willow's new home ready........sweet man helped me on my fence to the entrance of her shed. ......which seemed to take forrrrreeeevvvaa! It is looking good though and have a little bit more to do and it will be finished. I worked on the window.......love it!!!!!! I took out the glass to the window.......and put in chicken wire......cuuuuttteee! 


By 6:30 yesterday evening,  I had to go see Willow, Twig and Leaf. Couldn't stand it any longer..........they are beautiful! God made them just for us! I am so thankful! I knew when I got there who Willow was. Cheryl had told me that she had light spots on her face and nose.........I spotted her and Twig and Leaf......I could hardly contain my emotions.  Cuteness is what they are.



I would like for you all to meet Twig. He has such a precious face! Black on his face and black legs with little spots on them.


And here is Leaf.......he has a sweet face also. He has brown patches on his legs and face. As you can see their little coats are matted because of birth, but they will be looking better as they age.


Momma Willow has brown spots on her nose as you can see at the top of the picture. She is such a good Momma. Always pushing her babies towards herself. Sweetest thing to watch. She is in the pen with two other Mommas. The babies get confused, but she is right there pushing them back to where she wants them.



Little Leaf is getting a little dinner..........




now it is Twigs turn to nurse........love it!!!!!


The time spent over at Crescent C Farm was so wonderful. Watching all the babies.......who knows how many! The babies were hopping. I am hoping to get it on video for you when they move over here. It is the funniest thing to watch! Some have asked what kind are they. Cheryl said, that the babies are Dorset like their Momma Willow and they have some Suffolk and Hampshire like their Daddy. 


Well I am off to go and finish up the gate and then over to their farm to pick Willow, Twig and Leaf to come and live at Prairie Flower Farm.........the Lord has truly given me the desire of my heart. He didn't need to, but He did and I noticed and thanked Him........a lot!


Hugs to your day from my farm!!!!!!! Only a few more days of my vacation and so far it has been beyond wonderful! I have so many things to show you.........I will........soon! My little garden I have started is doing very well. 

Today is going to be 75 degrees and sunny.......can't believe this weather!!!!!! I am not complaining.......just amazed!

Linda

  5. Linda,

    I'm so excited for your Willow, Twig and Leaf :) :) They'll have a great life at Prairie Flower Farm. When I lived in Oregon, there were quite a few farms in the area that raised sheep. It was really cute to see all the babies around early spring. They look like little cotton balls...and when they start jumping/springing here and there, it's like little puffs of popcorn ...adorable in the extreme :) :) I can't wait to see their place all fixed up :) :) Enjoy your vacation :) Love and hugs from the ocean shores of California, Heather :)

  7. I love to see the sheep! We have sheep also on our little homestead, but we have had only one baby so far. We have two small flocks, Suffolk-Southdown crosses for meat and Shetland and Finnsheep for fiber. My husband spends all spring shearing with hand shears for small farm flocks all around our area. I'm sure you'll love your sheep, they really are fun to keep. Your weather sounds heavenly! I can't wait for warmer weather.
