    Default Sometimes my husband is oblivious (Video added #22)

    Yesterday, I was watching my husband go to work. He walked out of the house and started baaing at the girls in the pasture. I asked him why he was baaing and he said, "we'll, they were talking ...... so I'm talking back", and off to work he went...... The girls NEVER talk...so I figured there must be a reason.... so I go outside and I found these....

    By the end of the day I had 6 lambs, 2 sets of twins and two singles.....Exactly 150 days from when rent-a-ram showed up on the property, so he must have gone to work immediately. I have 3 more to ewes to go...

    Awww gorgeous! Congrats! I think it's a man thing- I live with my dad and he is completely blind to incidents when the dogs have been in the bin or there is a fresh mess from the older and marginally incontinent one on the floor...

    LOL, yup, he always seems to miss the dead gopher or the cat vomit on his way to the bathroom in the morning... unless he steps right in it!

    Squeeeeeee!!

    And also funny. I think all men are oblivious some of the time. Tho it's cute your DH "baas" at the sheep. If I'm ever successful at my mini-donk search, I wonder if my DH will hee haw?

    Survey says no....

    DH says the mini donks are too noisy......

    On the subject of husbands, I had to laugh as I had a visitor this morning. It was my friend's husband (without my friend). They had seen the pics on facebook and he wanted to see them in person because they were so cute..... See, men are all really soft and squishy inside, despite all their protests......

    Squeeeee! LOVE them! Congrats on your babies. I am eagerly waiting for October when I bring home my buck (he lives at my work with my employer's bucks) and start the whole circle again. I do have one doe due this month and am really interested to see her babies.

    ETA: My hubby "maa"'s at the goats. LOL

    My husband would notice lambs. He is the "head" Obstetrician here at the Farm. All the Mother-to-be's mentally "call" him to come watch. I have seen him arise from a TV show, up REALLY early in the AM (he is NOT an early riser), go check someone who is ready to deliver their baby. Delivers lambs, foals, kittens and puppies. Not bad for catching human babies either!

    I think it started when he was the night foaling guy at a breeding farm when quite young. Took care of a LOT of baby horses back then, did difficult or problem deliveries as needed, never lost a foal. Developed his "baby coming radar" about then. He still does some surprise foal deliveries or oversees them often enough, when he gets to customer homes on his Farrier rounds. Mare says NOW, so he doesn't have time to call the customer. Customer comes out for their scheduled appointment and he tells them Baby Foal is here!

    I swear, mares wait for him to arrive! New foal in a couple minutes after he greets the horse in the stall!!

    He doesn't speak "animal" much to all of them, but now and again he and the cats appear to have conversations while he is getting the barn cats fed first thing in the AM.

    Limmylambs!

    Aw now I miss lambs...

    Yeah that is something my DH would do too. Animal behavior goes right over his head.

    Truth. I noticed the afterbirth first, then I noticed momma looking thinner, then I noticed coltie in the stall :=)
