1st Lambs of 2014 show up Deus Ex Machina
So there we were, wrapping up our daughter's Greek themed birthday party by visiting with the baby goats when we discovered one of our ewes, Buttercup, had given birth to two beautiful ewe lambs. They were up and about, happily feeding from mom. It gave the guests the mistaken impression that lambing was easy and clean and happened all the time at our place which I did nothing to disuade. Because they were born during our Greek themed party they were named Persephone and Demeter by our children.
