Farm life

Sometimes life on the farm is idyllic and wonderful. Watching lambs romping in the pasture and running around their happy healthy mothers, other days it is full of difficult decisions involving life and death. Today is the dark side of farm life. I had to make the choice to "put down" one of my original sheep. She was down with lambing troubles and I did not have any other choice. I'm sad but its part of farm life. I still have 3 other younger ewes to lamb including her daughter, so life does continue! Poor Bumbly...

  2. Loss of life even of a farm animal is always sad.
    I felt so bad when we lost four cows and their calves last spring. Sorry for your loss.
