I grabbed a flashlight and headed out to the nearby pasture, 2 kids waiting patiently in the van. My suspicions were correct. A little white wobbly legged lamb!
I quickly headed back to the van, called Ethan who was trailing behind me in the Expedition (We ended up driving to church separately due to the baby pigs that morning.), and took the kids inside to get ready for bed.
When Ethan got home he headed out to the pasture. I watched his headlamp bob across the pasture and into the shed twice as I got our little 3 month old Jonathan ready for bed. On one of these trips of his, I also saw that he was carrying a full grown sheep!
I headed outside myself after Jonathan was settled in. As I peeked into the shed I was not surprised to see the little white lamb and momma, but I was surprised to see lamb number 2! I didn't see or hear a second lamb when I first got home, and Ethan mentioned it wasn't standing well when he found it so it might have been born shortly after I saw the first.
