Today, Jean the Jacob had brought her babies out to meet the flock at a distance. They had already learned the safe place was next to mother and Jean is excellent at calling them to her. I put them in the barn tonight because it is snowing quite hard and the ittle ones are so new, they cannot regulate their body temperatures as well as the fully insulated mother. Though she is very instinctual, she did not want to keep them in the barn or shelter out of the snow, so I locked them up until morning for their safe keeping.
This morning, though, the babies were out and Lena the Karakul was eating. Lena's twin girls were curious about the new comers and came prancing over. The all white girl is very bold and her sister followed her. Jean's babies did not want to meet the other little lambs though, and they sniffed eachother and then hid behind mother. It was absolutely adorable!
