    It is all too short!!! I got back here on Tuesday evening and have had one and a bit short days (as I was out most of Wednesday with a friend) on the farm. Managed to get Lyric and Frosties disbudded today (I was holding, my brother was "ironing" ha)... which was gross, as always. Elijah and Ricicles got done a couple of days ago.

    Only five more sheep left to lamb! We had 3 sets of twins yesterday and a single today so it's been fairly thick and fast.

    Most of the sheep have lambed without incident. There was the one that I posted about in caprine special care, but that's pretty much been the only ewe with a big issue.

    Demi has kind of "dropped" and is due in about 2 weeks now. She has still got a long way to go on her udder development though!

    Have to get my brother to milk Whisper out on one side every day until the kids start taking more - they are mainly drinking from one side and it shows!!! Harmony looks really even though.

    Anyway... off again in the morning for 2 weeks... and then I will be back to hopefully be there for Demi kidding - I have one more week off work, for that. It is sad for me leaving the four babies I already have... they are SOOO cute... I love it when they sneeze at you. Cuteness!!!

    Anyway, that is all for now!
