Spring always bring new life, every single year. Here at Valley View Farm, new life has arrived early...lots of new life. So far, our sheep have had more than twenty adorable, multi-colored little lambs!
Our Katahdin sheep are a rather large breed raised for meet, but not so much for their wool, which is coarse. Their lambs, however, start out with what you would imagine lambs wool to be like, nice and soft. For now, the lambs are kept inside the high tunnel with their Moms, Ted and Rosie (our resident, rescue ponies), and a few young steers. Amazing that three different kinds of animals can dwell together in harmony, isn't it? They do. Perhaps we humans can learn a thing or two from our four footed friends.
