Molly pops out a lamb...

... and surprises us all, particularly Aimee, who believed she was not pregnant. Molly waited, of course, until I was away for an SAR training before dropping the baby Saturday, making life a little interesting for Aimee. Thanks to Joe and Amy for helping with the ewe-mergency.

Funnily enough, Molly seems to be a superb mother even though this is her first. She has good genes, from her mother Tillie. We won't mention her father, Abraram, because he's also her mate, sheep having little or no incest taboo.

The new kids name is "Oliver." He has huge, very silly ears. Pictures to come.

Welcome to our Farm Blog.
The purpose of this blog is for Aimee and I to communicate with friends and family, with those of our students, and other folks in general who are interested in homesteading and farming activities.

The earliest posts, at the very end of the blog, tell the story of the Great Farm, our purchase of a fragment of that farm, the renovation of the homestead and its populating with people and animals. Go all the way to the last post in the archive and read backwards from there to get it in chronological order.

After getting tired of spam comments (up to a dozen or more per day), I required commentators to be Google "registered users". You can write me at mwomersley@unity.edu if you have a serious comment or question and are not a registered user.

Spammers -- don't bother writing -- there's no way I will post your spam to my blog. Just go away.
