The Lamb-cam returns!
It's "Lambing Season". Yes, with quotation marks and capital letters! Less than a week to go before our Gabby should pop out at least a couple of lambs to get things started and, if my record keeping is correct, the rest should follow in pretty quick succession. If you've checked out the Lamb-cam in the evenings, you can see that the girls are quite large now. This is the time when I start feeling guilty about breeding them. Even though it was a long (long) time ago, I can still remember how much effort it took to do anything at the end of pregnancy.
The bred ewes have been moved to a small field that adjoins the barn. From this point on, they will spend their nights inside the barn, under the watchful eye of the lamb-cam. Yes, after nearly a week of finding out, once again, that I have the computer IQ of a sheep, the lamb-cam is finally up and running again. I have to say, Heather, at MareStare, has a remarkable amount of patience with someone as handicapped as I am, when it comes to computer technology.
So, for the next little bit, you may not see much on the lamb-cam but what appears to be beached whales lying in the straw. Then again, you may end up seeing the miracle of birth. Stay tuned!

Love it!! But why does it go all blurry about every 5 seconds, then clear up?ReplyDelete
Apparently, it doesn't do it all the time. It was okay last night and most of today. I'm afraid we can thank Windstream for that problem...the same reason I can't upload pictures to the blog easily anymore. On my list to call them AGAIN in the morning. How I wish we had an alternative.ReplyDelete
