It's lambing time :0)

At Task Farms today, some 22 lambs had been born.  They have an overhang shelter in the large pen, but it has been unseasonably COLD and wet this winter and lambing began a bit earlier than wanted this year.  So, a make-shift infirmary was set up for the little ones that needed a bit of a boost. And, a very large stock trailer was placed next to the sheep barn for the new strong lambs to be housed in. 

One of several sheep pens.  You can see how sloppy wet it has been.

Infirmary.....lambs that needed a little help.

Newly born lambs are being kept in a very large stock trailer.

The ranch has a few porkers, chickens, and geese, too.
