March, Going Out Like A Lamb. March 30, 2012

I know, that’s not exactly  how they say it, but that’s how it is.

I stopped by Wheel-View Farm in Shelburne this Thursday AM to see their Spring lambs and perhaps take some photos.  The weather was, as predicted, grey and drizzly, but I’d previously spoken to the owner and arranged to be there, so  I went.

The sheep were in a dark barn, the weather being inhospitable to the young’uns, and the photos weren’t really what I’d hoped for, but the little lambs were so cute, I found myself speaking motherese and snapping away happily at celestial ISOs, resolving to deal with the quality issues later.

Here’s a newly shorn Mom decrying the attention I was lavishing on her twins:

“Go bother Junior, he’s over there playing “Hop On Pop.'”

And so he was:

Owner Carolyn grabbed one of the little ones to hold in the light so I could catch his sweet face, but when he saw my camera, he looked a little suspicious:

When he finally relaxed, he was just as cute as you’d imagine:

Soft, too.  🙂

The calves are due soon, so I’ll be back there in the next weeks to try to share that with you.

Bebes! I love bebes! Thank you so much for this post, and I will have to check back for the veal. 😉 / 😥

Your captions are the best, and I chuckled outloud (in a most professional manner, mind you) from my desk at work when I saw your lamby skeptic. Soo human-like. And your first shot of the family came out great.
