Boaz is here
Anita and Sharon had the 4 ram lambs in the barn waiting for us to choose. When we looked at their pictures, both Tim and I liked 1221 and it was the same in person. After we had chosen, Anita told me it was their pick too. That made me feel good because they have forgotten more than we know about sheep. We loaded him up and headed off the mountain, way too soon, I wish we could have stayed longer. When we got home, we called Esther, Naomi and Ruth off the hill and put them in the barn to meet their new husband. They started to talk to him, this low noise down deep in their throats. He wasn't impressed and went over to the hay feeder and started to eat. I am well aware that this will all change in the next few weeks to come. We are so excited for our first batch of lambs to come.
If you click this link you can see Boaz as a baby and now. It made me cry when I first saw it. http://sheepsandpeepsfarm.blogspot.com/2012/09/meeting-boaz.html?spref=fb He has grown into such a handsome ram and we love him already.
