The fresh spring sunshine peeked through long enough for a herd of new sheep and goat families to soak up some rays and eat some good hay.
Grace Michaud, co-owner, with her husband, Tom, of Black Rabbit Farm, said a number of babies were born in the past two weeks, including two Jacob sheep on St. Patrick’s Day.
She said the morning and afternoon feedings cause a lot of confusion among the sheep because they can’t tell their babies apart.
Black Rabbit Farm, 1701 Sequim-Dungeness Way, has an array of animals, including cows, ducks, rabbits, chickens, geese, horses, turkeys and roosters in addition to goats and sheep. It’s open 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday and can be reached at 582-3724 or by visiting www.blackrabbitfarm.com.
