Snowstorm of '09 produces MUCH more than snow!!

Sunday eve produced a nice winter snowstorm - the first real one we've had in many years. By 2 am we had 5 inches of snow!! Yippee!!
Here's a pic of Freckles today out enjoying sledding with us! She's an olde gal ~ almost 14 ~ but doesn't act her age & loves the snow as much as us!!


it never fails, when the pressure changes in the atmosphere, that's usually when lambs will be born! So, sure enough, at 11:47 last nite Wildflower gave birth to a sweet baby boy.


at 12:45 she gave birth to ANOTHER baby boy! TWINS!

Now, the flash makes this lil' guy look brown, but he's really dark black...And the FUNNY thing is, we don't RAISE BLACK sheep!! We don't have a single one in our flock! Not even a black FACE!! Guessing this one picked up some genes from a few generations back! hehe!!!

Hope everyone's staying warm!! I'm going to enjoy the snow while it's here!

Beth ~ aren't they adorable?! Even more in person!! Freckles LOVES to dress up ~ she has a full outfit: dog sled dog booties & dog sled dog coat ~ both which I got in MN when I went dog sledding ~ and a sweater that matches her hat but all we could find was the hat!!

Hey Susan! You don't know sheep are pregnant until a week or two before they deliever ~ they don't "show" like people & animals. And, no way to know twins until they're born (though if they were a twin themselves it does increase the odds..she was not a twin, however)....So we were surprised for sure!

Hey Angie!! I'm glad it finally snowed too!! I didn't work on a thing today, but I needed to be! Just kept thinking we don't get snow very often, so I went out & played!! hehe!
