    Thought everyone would be interested in the good news. After 2 days and about 4 hours of searching , we flush her from a large pine thicket WITH A LAMB in tow !

    I'm surprised we even found her. Three of us was combing this knob , by dividing up low, middle , and high. As we pushed to the edge of the woods, my hubby saw what he thought were deer tracks( and he's a hunter :eek: ). Right at the edge there she stood with a little ewe lamb. Man, she took off tho' . Looked like a reindeer, poor little thing couldn't keep up.


    So we picked up the lamb and took it to the barn. She followed. My hubby looked like HE had just had the baby ! :haha:

    Anyways , thanks to all who wrote with advice re: preditors . I'm filing it for later use if I need it. I can at least say ONE thing good happened in the last 7 days :D

    I had THAT FEELING that she'd show up!

    Now you have another "Remenber When" story.
