Sick of Death!

I had not planned on posting this today.. but I need to vent. This year has been so difficult for us.. and I just got a bit more bad news..

As you know we lost my Father earlier this month.. and you know that I lost my dog Annie. Well last night yet another lamb was born dead. That makes 2 born dead and 1 that I had to have put down because of seizures only a few days after Dad's passing. That is a lot considering we only bred 5 ewes! Well this morning Don told me that hawks swooped down and carried away 4 of our hens.. 2 of them being my favorites. I know that the hens are just farm stock... but that caught me off guard and I am sitting here with a lump in my throat and tears in my eyes...

Surely something wonderful is just right around the corner..

Those hawks are so brazen. The little lambs must be hard since they are just babies.

I just saw this post. I am so sorry. It seems you are dealing with more than your share. I am praying. Do you know what has caused the lambs to be still born?
Certainly there is hope for the future.
