Winter Lambs

This winter our ewe had triplets. We ended up losing one lamb and the ewe, which was very hard on all of us, especially shepherd Jon. So through this winter we have been raising two lambs, which kept us pretty busy. Here they are one day old.
Sweet little tiny things...

...except that they grow up, and these two actually think they're dogs or something. They hang out with us in the greenhouse, and in the flower beds...
...and the porch. Our (real) dogs are not sure what's going on but have been forced to give up their place on the front door mat. It wouldn't be so bad except the (fake) lamb dogs have no clue about being house broke, which should include the front porch.
Machen gets a kick out of them.
