One More Week...

It seems like forever ago that I took Darla to the neighbor's house to visit with the ram. She is due to lamb next week, sometime around the 22nd. I'm impatiently waiting. Poor Darla, she's pretty uncomfortable since she's so big and it's been hot.



Check out her fuzzy belly. I had to shear her by hand (with hand shears) because I accidently broke my comb for the electric shears. And check out what's going on in the background! The darn ram lamb is STILL trying to nurse. Purl lets him. It's a good thing she doesn't have an udder. She's pretty much dry now, but I guess he still tries.


Poor Darla, you used to be so nice and trim. Now, well, let's just say, you're not so trim anymore!

I hope this week goes by quickly!

Oh, poor Darla. That last week of pregnancy is the pits! I can't wait to see lamb pictures again!!! :) That's hilarious that the huge ram is still trying to nurse. Purl is a very patient momma to still let him try.
