My shetland ewe Anna, gave birth today to her first lamb, and the very first lamb ever born on my farm today.  I have an Easter lamb!   He told me his name was Atlas, and was up and sproinging amazingly fast.   Mother and lamb are doing great.  This was the first time I’ve been actually present for the birth, and it was awe inspiring.

Now, how will I ever tear myself away from the farm to go to work tomorrow?  It’s bad enough I have to leave the barn tonight.  Thankfully, I have an awesome baby monitor in the barn so I’ll know if anything should go awry in the night. 

Who’d a thunk it?  An  Easter lamb!  Feeling very blessed tonight.
