Lost lambs

In our seven years of raising Icelandic sheep, we've never had any miscarriages or abortions. This year, we've had two, Ellysa and Drea. Summer 08 was very wet, and I'm afraid our hay had just too much mold in it. I tried to sort the hay, but I'm sure they got some, so I feel badly. The girls will feel so sad when lambs start arriving. Shepherding certainly has it's ups and downs.
Fresh snow today. Hopefully the last of the season!
