Lamb for March ~ Camera-Critters #152

Is March supposed to come in like me or leave like me???

(c) Misty DawnS

I took this photo a very long time ago... I took this photograph back in September of 2006!!! This was back when we still lived in Ohio... back when we still raised sheep. I honestly miss raising sheep. When I say that out loud, my husband looks at me and rather blankly informs me that I've blocked out the difficulties and am only remembering the good things. He's probably right, because the first couple years of raising sheep were very difficult. We were focused on quantity, rather than quality... and we got the very wrong breed of ram to start growing our flock. Eventually though, we figured it out. We got set up better, we narrowed down our flock to the good mothers and less flighty ewes, and we learned a lot about the different breeds and how to breed for the traits we desired in our lambs. I read a LOT about sheep. My lawyer boss said he'd never seen someone devour so many books, websites, and information on one subject before, but I really took an interest in it, and I enjoyed being a part of it. So, basically, when we finally figured out what we were doing with raising sheep... that's about the time we sold the flock and moved to Missouri to raise beef cattle. That's a whole different ballgame, Folks.

Anyway, I thought this photo, which happens to be one of my favorite photos from when we had lambs, would be appropriate for this Camera-Critters post. It is, after all, time for spring to start flirting with us, and Easter is around the corner too (and time to start looking for the top easter gifts for kids). Besides, isn't March supposed to "go out like a lamb"??? Shhhhhhh don't tell the lamb in the photo that he's too early!

How bout in like a lamb, out like a lamb? That would make me happy!:) I can't imagine raising sheep, but I do know what you mean about devouring information. Right now, I am in love with birds. If I ever fall in love with sheep, I know where to go now! lol

I agree with Roni. In like a lamb and out like a lamb, too. Sounds good to me, especially such a sweet little cutie as this one.
Oops, I don't have my Camera Critters post ready. I'm out like a lion here. Gotta find fotos.

Awesome shot, Misty! In and out like a lamb would be fine with me. Lambs are such cute and gentle looking critters. Thanks for hosting.

Ohhhhhhhhhhhhh, your question, my answer: Seriously, this is one awesome photo...so darling. Coming in like a lamb or going out like a lamb, if it were something this adorable, we'd have March EVERY month.

LAKESIDE GEESE [and ducks] is my Camera Critter Link for this weekend.

Have a great day.

Hummm...which came first? The Lamb or March? Around here, it sure ain't 'in like a lamb," as we are expecting a snowfall over night.

That's a good looking critter! I wonder what it was thinking about. I enjoyed reading about your adventures in sheep raising. I hope the cows are doing well. I'd like to try a few chickens. I guess we can have up to 3 in our city, but I would have to study up on it to see if I thought we could handle it.
