Sweet Magnolia Died

Hello sweet ladies, 

I know that some of you who follow my fb already know that Sweet Magnolia didn't make it through Wednesday night. Broke my heart. Not sure what happened, but with the bad weather and not noticing that she had blood spots in her shed it made it hard to know what happened. It was so cloudy and sleet where she lived with Lil' Birch we did not notice on the straw that she had bled.Later found that it was quite a lot.  I am so thank that I have her baby. He is doing very well at taking the bottle. He is now up to 10 ounces each feeding and loves being down with the teenage chicks, ducks and Momma kitty with her baby kittens. He doesn't even cry, which is a huge blessing. Thank you to all who prayed. I know the Lord heard them. The transition for Lil' Birch has been very smooth. Life on the farm doesn't always look pretty for sure. I get so attached easily!!!!!! I would rather love then never experience though. I am hoping to buy another Rambouillet Ewe again.....soon!

I have Sweet Maggies wool.....another gift!  I will be seeing about getting it spun and knitting myself a gift. Thinking of a scarf.  

I wish I could put up pic's, but if you would like to see a video please go here to my fb. He is absolutely adorable. Very playful. I will introduce him to the flock when he gets a little bigger. 

Hugs and God bless your day! 



  1. Oh, Linda, I am so sorry for the loss! Lil'Birch will certainly be a special boy and have a special place in your heart now that his mama is gone. Blessings, Heather

  2. aw, sorry for your dear magnolia leaving you. Sad. Glad baby is ok. Hugs.

  3. I'm very sad to hear your news but that is wonderful that Lil' Birch is doing so well. I know all your animals are loved very much!!! You can tell that by the stories you share with us.
    Blessings, Nancy

  4. It's a very sad news, but thanks God, Lil'Birch is fine. Now you are like his mumm, aren't you ? God bless you and all your farm !

  5. I sure hate you lost Sweet Magnolia. Amazing how your two that had twins did so well and then with one she didn't make it. I know that brings sadness to your family plus a loss of money for what you paid for her. Glad Lil' Birch is doing good.


  6. I am so sorry for your loss of Sweet Magnolia but I know you are grateful that the little one is doing well. I wish you much love and happiness and know your gift to yourself of her precious wool will make you smile always remembering her! Blessings to you and yours.

  7. I do get to visit your blog as much as I would like as I have poor eyesight and can only read or work a short time.
    It was said to read about your loss and I know the life of living and running a farm. Retired from it and must say city life is not as active as our farm life. Love your Blog. LenZie

  8. I'm so sorry that Sweet Magnolia didn't make it. I'm going to head over to FB to see the video of Birch. Perhaps I'll feel better then. sigh
