Funny how a few fuzzy bundles of cuteness can slow things down in our neck of the woods. It was life as usual on the pastures of the farm “with a funny name.” The lamb born this season have now moved to the front pasture of Kaukiki Farm in Longbranch, Wash., slowing commuters as drivers gawk and awe. How could you not?
These lamb were born earlier this year. Go here http://wp.me/p37rAm-G4 for the story of a day in the life of Kaukiki Farm.
UPDATE: If you ever wondered why lamb like to jump on their mother’s back while out grazing, according to http://www.sheep101.info/raisingsheep2.html, they are playing “king of the hill.”
Here is what they say about a sheep’s day out in pasture: During the day, the lambs spend their time eating, sleeping, and playing. Siblings tend to stick together. At the beginning, lambs don’t venture too far from their dams. As they get older, they form play groups. They become more independent and active. They love to run and jump. Their favorite “game” is “king of the hill.”
