New Arrivals at Dancing Leaf Farm
This is the face that greets me every morning when I go to the barn to feed the animals. I really don't think there is anything cuter than a new lamb. They look like they're always smiling. These twins were born last week to my Cotswold, Picadilly. One boy and one girl. Their names are Josephine and Leopold, named after the two darling kids of our friends in England. The lambs sleep curled up together in the feed bin. I wish I could get a picture of them in it, but they always hop up when they hear me coming. I come in and say, "The babies!!!" and they run over to say hi. I sweep them up and we all nuzzle. I love the smell of new lambs, a little bit sweet hay and mama's milk, lanolin and lamb breath. Mmmmmmmm.
