The Brat Patrol
I can't believe how fast these lambs grow up. They all are eating hay, grain, mineral salt and drinking water, grazing on the grass and still nursing too! Even Trinity is taking almost 50 oz of milk replacer a day now! Plus the 4 oldest lambs are all chewing cud. Their little rumens are actually functioning now. Tonight they are all able to come and go from the barn for the first time overnight. We just did a barn check and they are all lined up outside against the stone foundation, babies and mamas, under the stars. The black flies have arrived but tonight it's cool and there are no bugs, it's a gorgeous evening for a lamb debut to pasture sleeping!
