Her arrival was uncerimonial to say the least, but we are very happy that she is here. Introducing Blackie, our new ewe.
Blackie arrived from Quebec on the evening of Friday February 1. She, and her people had had a long drive and were glad to finally stop. It was dark, cold, and she was quite content in her truck, but our place was her final destination. I picked her tiny frame (very tiny, she is just knee high) up off the truck, and placed her on the snow. She didn’t mind her halter, but wasn’t too sure about this cold white stuff under her feet again. Blackie felt VERY pregnant.
She hesitantly at first, but after the sheep treat was introduced, joyfully walked to her new stall. She will be in there until she lambs, which shouldn’t be too long now. Everyone was surprised to find her user so full, and imagine my surpass, when on Monday I felt her user again and she presented it to me. Lamb following soon!
