Below are some photos that I took of the lambs on the first day that they were moved from the jugs along with their mamas and put into the big pen with the other sheep. I've always found flock dynamics interesting....especially so when lambs are put into the midst. Some of the ewes that have never lambed will run from the little ones in terror. Others will charge and butt the lambs. This year, both of my moms were very protective of their babies. They constantly put themselves between the lamb and other sheep or humans. With curious lambs roaming a larger pen it certainly kept the mamas on their toes!
