There’s a LAMB in my kitchen!

It’s been nearly five years since we moved into our 267-year-old suburban farm.  The last of the renovations are being completed and now it’s time to turn our attention to turning this place into a legitimate working farm.  Which leads me to the matter-at-hand.  There’s a lamb in my kitchen.  And, it’s alive.  Life has a funny way of paying attention to us when we don’t think we’re being watched.  My husband and I were considering raising a few lambs in the hopes that I could manage to harvest some wool for my knitting compulsion and some milk for our daughter’s interest in learning how to make cheese.  Low and behold, the vet next door called the other day and asked if we would be interested in taking one of his lambs.  It had been orphaned (a bummer in farm-speak,) and needed someone to bottle feed it and give it a home.  And, that is how we ended up with a three-week-old bummer lamb in our kitchen.  He has made himself right at home and has easily won over our hearts, as well as those of our dogs whom he never stops chasing in circles around our kitchen island.  Life is never quiet here at StonePost Farm, but it sure is filled with lots of laughter, love, and an endless array of surprises!
