I finally got my camera out to the barn and what a beautiful day it is..can you tell is 5 degrees?  All the animals were out in the sun with no wind, the sun was warmer than the barn after such a cold night. 
Our two horses with ice on their whiskers

These two twins were born about 4 days ago, they belong to, Jan, our resident tunis/texal ewe.  She and Walker had fun and now these girls are here.  They are cute little things. 

Maggie, our other non-finnsheep had triplets and is doing well with them.  They are about 12 hours younger than Jan's and you can tell a little as they are smaller.  It's hard to feed three but Maggie is doing well. Two boys and a girl.  Good job, Mags!

This is our first ram born a few weeks ago.  He is a brown, non-fading registered Finnsheep and is gorgeous.  I will be watching his fleece as he ages but really a great guy!  

These are Kaarina's quadruplets, as an update. (one didn't survive the birthing) They are still in a lambing stall as I am teaching them to drink from an orphan bucket.  Momma Kaarina is a fantastic mom and has the best fleece in the flock.  Last Spring she sufferer mastitis so bad that her udder was left too scarred to raise them herself so, I'm helping.  They are growing like weeds and are doing well and have gone from 7 lbs at birth (imagine that! 4, 7lb lambs at one time) to now 8-9 lbs in a week.  They will hopefully be out of this stall and out with the other kids soon. Two girls and a boy.

  Most of the lambs will be available for purchase.
