Well this morning they drank there bottle better that at 3:40....(that's when I was able to drag myself out of my bed and walk down two sets of steps.) Well it's not as much as I could hope, but it's better. Well I don't have much time to write.....bye

Today I got a phone call from someone who use to be my sheep leader. Well he asked me if I could take care of these twin lambs whose mom got mastitis. The lambs started getting hypodermic, so right now there in my basement and I have to bottle feed them four times a day. They are the sweetest things that you could ever meet. Well my old sheep leader says that for each lamb that lives I will work weekend and then there mine! Well I better go feed them so I have to cut this post short.

On Friday the 16Th, my sheep Zippy had twin lambs. I never lad eyes on them alive. I think the other sheep had been mean, or something like that. However it happened, they are died. It makes me so sad to think that maybe there might have been something I could have done if I would have gone out to the barn sooner. I really didn't think that she would have been the first ewe to give birth. I really didn't think that she was going to have twins also. Normally the first year they lamb they have twins. I just can never get over a death when I don't know what happened. Well now I have the last two ewes in different pens so that they won't bug each other when they're lambing, or hurt each others lambs when they come. I know that there's a reason God let this happen even if I don't know what it is. I have gotten a little better so I'm not as sad. Tho I still sometimes still feel like crying, but not as often.

Sorry I haven't wrote a new blog in a long time. Well my sheep are really showing there pregnancy now! They are getting so wide and are starting to make milk to prepare for the birth of their lambs. I just hope I'll be prepared.....panicking, freaking out inc.....Well I have never "freaked out" before, but I have been nervous during their births. Well I still even after all this time don't have much to talk about. If something imported happens I'll write to you about it.
