First lamb for the season

It was rather exciting when hubby came in to declare our first lamb for the season had just been born late yesterday afternoon.



It's exciting because we didn't think we'd get any lambs, as the new young ram we got from our brother-in-law, died in May. We feel it was from a snake bite. We didn't know if he'd had a chance to perform his duty with the ewes. However, it seems all will be well for lambs this year!!!


It's fun watching them and how quickly they start trying to jump and run around, including trying to climb the base of a large pine tree!!


We're told to "behold (or look) to the Lamb of God" - the Lord Jesus Christ, who came as a sacrifice for the sins of the whole world. We no longer need the old law and sacrifices - they were a shadow of the reality; they were to point to the coming Messiah and Saviour.
