When Will She Lamb?
Your guess is as good as mine. Better, in fact, because your guess could win you the privilege of naming our lamb(s). A Facebook friend suggested a pool, and I think that's a grand idea.
Starting right now, you can enter your guess as a comment on this post, or on the companion post on Facebook. Be the closest guess as to when our baby lamb will be born and you can pick the baby's name. If there are two babies (wouldn't that be amazing?) the second place guess will name the second baby.
I'll consider your guess as Central Time, and please use a 24 hour clock: 1 AM is 0100, and midnight is 2400. If I don't see the lamb born, I'll make my best guess as to birth time, and my best judgment will be final.
I just came from the shed, where Mary Elizabeth and Titus are in the lambing jug. They went in there all by themselves, so I'll leave them there overnight and then turn them back out with the flock if nothing has happened by morning. The other boys wander in and out of the shed a lot, so they have plenty of company and seem perfectly peaceful.
(Interesting bit of trivia: tomorrow is Shadrach's third birthday. This must be the perfect time of year for lambs.)
Give us your best shot, friends. I really hope the winning guess is soon, because this waiting is terrible...
