We have a flurry of birthdays in the barn this week beginning with Crystal's today.
She is now 8 years old and I can't believe where the time has gone! She was one of the first ewes we purchased, a twin, stemming from a flock in Washington. She traveled across country that spring of 2002 all the way to us here in NH. I didn't have a digital camera back then so I don't have the cute lamby pictures (and she was cute!) but this is her a year later at one year old.
Crystal is probably our steadiest, mellowest ewe, always has been. She rarely has a issue and always loves a hug.
Here she is this morning, enjoying cake with her friends!
