As some of you may know, my husband and I run/work/manage the family farm, along with some much-appreciated help from my sister and my son.
Most days, I hate getting all bundled up to drive one mile down the road to do the daily morning feeding.
This is especially true when the weather is bad.
Fortunately, there is a bright spot in all of this, and it's what I just HAD to show you!
Lambs have been born regularly at our farm since sometime in December.
We have mostly white sheep, but one ewe that is black.
Occasionally we get a couple of black lambs that maybe have a bit of white in them.
It's always interesting to see what the lambs will look like!
(Contrary to popular belief, they do NOT all look alike, AND they actually have different personalities!)
But look at this lamb.
I call it a "Clamb".
Because it's markings make it look sort of "cow-like".
Get it? Cow-lamb = Clamb?
I know, it's lame.
Here he is, looking at me full on!
Most of our lambs are pretty skittish around us, since we don't encourage getting attached because eventually most of them will be leaving us...
but this one kind of has the attitude of a cow, I think!
Here is another view...
How funny is that?
All of the lambs are hilarious to watch...they run and jump and play...it's a joy to see!
Makes those daily treks to the farm a whole lot more bearable...
especially with a "clamb" in the mix!
