Still Pregnant and Milking Scene

Purl still hasn't lambed, and I'm pretty sure now that she didn't settle on 9/21. She must have come back into heat and been bred on 10/8. When I first took pictures of her udder on 2/9, I thought it didn't look as big as it should have if she was that close to lambing. She really bagged up after that though, and I thought perhaps she was just waiting until the last minute!

Her "new" due date should be on or around March 2nd. The good news about that is that hopefully the webcam will be in before then. I can't wait to have it set up!

I don't have a picture to go with this post, so instead I'll post a picture of a print we have hanging on our mud room wall. It's a Gene Matras print called Milking Scene. One of my good friends' moms bought it for me from the Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival several years ago, as a late birthday present. I just loved the scene and how she resembles me a good bit. I love that the boys are helping out and she's teaching the younger boy how to milk. Plus, I love Jerseys. It makes me want a big barn and family milk cow.



He's got lots of other great prints too. He does a great job capturing farm scenes. I love the lamb print, and the pig. This haying print is a great one too.
