Lambing!

Pinky surprised us with quadruplets on Sunday. She is a Finn sheep or Finnish Landrace. They are known to have multiple lambs. She has had triplets and quadruplets before. We moved them into a stall which is protected from the weather. They stay in the stall for a few days while mom rests and the lambs learn the ropes of nursing and dealing with the world. It is a big place for the little lambs. Here is a portrait of the family.

You can mark your calendar for February 17th from 10-3 for our Knit/Spin/Crochet In at the Red Barn Studio at Heelside Farms. Come join our community of fiber lovers for a relaxing, inspiring experience. You might get a peek at some lamby pies as well.
