I sometimes hesitate to post photos of the lambs - after all, our main product is meat. In 6-8 months, the lambs that we're caring for today will become the product that earns us our living. Some people have a problem with this. To me, it is part of a cycle. I absolutely love this time of year - new life is amazing. My friend and fellow sheepman Al Medvitz puts it this way: "In this country, we think that death is the opposite of health - it's not. Death can be a healthy and necessary part of life."
With that said, here are a few photos from today.
