"Unlikely Uma"

Here's Uma, the survivor of the two lambs born with white muscle disease Saturday, getting to explore the wide world outside the lambing pen for the first time, the injection of Bo-Se having taken hold, or apparently so.

It's sunny, but still cold, and the other ewes may try to steal her -- something ewes sometimes do -- so we will have to keep watching her like a hawk. far, so good.

Aimee and I are working shifts, watching the lamb.

That's a lot of attention so far for this little tiny scrap of life.

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 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.
