I rejected several titles for this post...

Sheep Groping, for Fun and Profit
Copping a Feel, Wooly-style
Udder Nonsense

Actually, that last one would have worked, without drawing a lot of really weird internet searches.  (Or searchers.)

Anyway, I finally got a chance to grope Onyx while she was eating this morning.  (She is very single-minded about her eating, once she gets rolling.)  There's definite swelling in the udder - 'making bag' is the technical term - so we could be looking for lamb anytime between now and two weeks from now.  (It's not a scientific process.  And every ewe is different.)

Still can't get close enough to Goldie, though.  Every time I sidle up to her, she gives me a Look and shuffles around to face me, so I can't get up to no good. 
But since Orion managed to nail Miss Onyx, I'm pretty sure he got Goldie, too...

So, all you folks who guessed April dates, get ready!

Hysterical opening paragraph there, Gayle. Can't wait to see the lambsters!
