This morning, two more lambs were born, another ram and ewe combo.
In total, eight adult ewes were bred at Howell Farm this year, meaning more lambs are expected throughout the week.
When they are first born, the lambs bear a striking resemblance to raggedy dishcloths.
Having spent a previous spring at Howell Farm, I can say that one of the best moments of the year is when the lambs start hopping. It’s difficult to describe the wonderment using mere words -- you look out in the emerald green pasture and see lambs flying through the air with reckless abandon. It makes you smile.
