I have said from the beginning of moving to the farm that I wanted us getting animals to happen organically. By that I meant that I didn’t want go looking and searching for animals to have on our farm,I kind of wanted them to find us. Well, we have been found. We have actually known this for quite some time now, but my good friend Abby’s sheep are having lambs! Sheep were on the top of our “animal wish list” here on the farm so this was just perfect. It’s officially official now because we went to the ultrasound yesterday at Black Sheep Farm & got to see the little lambs for ourselves….
The sheep are Icelandic sheep & I’m so obsessed with how unique they look. They are pretty fascinating creatures. I’m not going to lie to you but being in close courters with them & how nervous they were for their ultrasounds made me a little nervous as well, but mostly they were just wanting to keep to themselves & weren’t thrilled about all of us being in their home with them. The ultrasound was so much fun & I learned so much already just from that half hour appointment! I didn’t even know that they did this for sheep. It was such a cool experience & got me really excited to raise our own sheep. We found out all the lady sheep were with lambs & some with multiple. They should be having them in the next couple of weeks & then soon we will be bringing some lambs to White Cottage Farm & we are thrilled! I can’t wait to welcome our first animals to the farm & to take you guys on the journey with us. I hope you guys are excited! I will be sure to keep you updated here & on WhiteCottageFarm.Com about our sheep & more farm experiences very soon. Thank you guys so much for stopping by the blog! xx
