PHOTOS: Lambs everywhere at Rock Creek
Photos and Story by James Hill
The Rock Creek Farm has newcomers — lambs. Lambing season is winding down and the farm will have about 44 babies this season. Many of them will use this enclosure to race up and down in a mass of white and black.
The guy that has to oversee the month-long lambing is Terry Lookabill, Rock Creek Farm coordinator. Whether it’s day or night, Lookabill is always on call in case a ewe goes into labor.
Some of the lambs find refuge in the pens where typically the ewes go to give birth. These are great places for the lamb to stay warm with a red heat lamp and plenty of straw.
