I grabbed my camera.
She greeted me and I pet her nose. I asked her if it was really time and she turned around and showed me her backside. Then she laid down.....
That's right. Not even one of my three children. Yes, that makes me really sad when I think about it.
I was a little scared at first. The lamb was just laying there. Then Poppy started licking her face.
And soon she was up and nursing. And wobbling around. No name yet.
Poppy is the matriarch of our flock. She's not the oldest but she's an aggressive eater and leader.
And she's a really good mama. We have 4 ewe lambs now. 3 of them are white with masks and spots.
