It’s Alright to be Itty Bitty…..

Dad had a ewe who had the ittiest (Word says it’s not a word, but if bittiest is than ittiest must be too, right?), bittiest baby lamb Saturday in the night.  Sunday we headed down to pickup their mower (our’s is out of commission, plumes of smoke are bad as far as mowers are concerned) and power washer.  While we were there we did a little photo shoot.


Mama had a rough go of it before giving birth so don’t judge.  Also, (for those not familiar with sheep breeds) Dad raises hair sheep that shed instead of needing sheared.  So, the wool/hair issue isn’t a type of sheep mange it’s naturally supposed to do that.





Just look at the size difference between the one in the front and the one in the back.  Both born the same day.


She’s a good mama none the less and mama and baby are doing fine.  The little one was also the center of attention after our family reunion Sunday afternoon.  The kids were smitten when they saw him.

Adopting one child won't change the world; but for that child, the world will change.

I am the wife to my wonderful husband and joint care giver to the many animals we have acquired on our small farm here on the prairie. This is a bit about our life on our farm. We are striving for simplicity and self-sufficiency, determined to become debt-free, trying to live in tune with the natural cycles of this earth, and challenging ourselves to transition to a diet based on traditional foods. It isn't always easy, and we don't always succeed, but it is a fun learning process. Join us as we stumble through learning how to provide for ourselves, get off the treadmill, and work toward a simpler way of life.
