These are two ewes we've just recently added to our flock. Xena and Ambrosia! They seem to be finding their places within the flock and one of their jobs is babysitting the new lambs. I wish the picture would have been more centered. I reallllly need a new camera! :)

Our Toggenburg doe finally gave birth today. She was bred to a pygmy buck so we weren't sure what the babies would look like. Well, they are absolutely adorable, all three! They are still wet in this picture but I couldn't wait. The one on the right is a buck and the other two are does. I'll have to get some more pictures now that they are dry. hee hee Mom and babies are doing well, now we are waiting on our Kinder doe who was bred to the same pygmy buck. Not the best picture of me, no make-up and wild hair, but hey, I was so excited that those kids were finally here I didn't care!
We left the house for only 2 and a half hours yesterday evening to go visit my parents. We carefully checked with the sheep before we left and they assured us they were fine. When we arrived back home we were surprised to find a beautiful set of twins out of Limpus CeCe and Windswept Bravo. One blettet ewe and one tri-colored bersugget ram. All are doing well this morning. We have three more ewes left to go and our two does, Sunshine (Kinder) and Nellie (Tog), both bred to a pygmy buck.

Here's a pic of our new Easter ducklings we picked up yesterday at a couple of local farm supply stores. We picked out 4 Mallards cause we thought they were adorable with their pretty colors, 2 white pekin cause Matthew just had to have a white duck and then we were lucky enough to find some Khaki Campbells and we took 4 of those for egg production. I'm not sure if there is anything cuter than a baby duck!
