I was checking for lambs yesterday and saw that a ewe had just lambed. I figured she would have another so i went to the house to see if our daughter Katy wanted to see the other lamb born. Katy is our animal lover and never gets tired of helping with the animals. Son James was already at school.
We sat down on an irrigation pipe and waited. The sun was out and the irrigation sprinklers serenaded us with their "chchchcchshhhh." Katy gave me a running commentary of the birth. Katy is 5, but as a ranch kid she has a very specific knowledge of where lambs come from, and how the come out :) Katy explained to me how the lambs got into the ewe, and how, and where, they would come out. She may not have used all the correct words, but she had her facts down pat!
