Lambing for 2017 has begun and DeeDee was the first lamb to be born. The first lamb is always special and, wow, is she ever cute. Come watch this short movie about December's little DeeDee and her first days at Bear Valley Farm. Prepare yourself to be warmed in heart.
Say hello to the first rams born at Bear Valley Farm 2017. The offspring of Lizzy, these two spunky rams are quite the characters. Full of energy and activity, watch them explore their new worlds both inside and outside. Prepare to say "Awww" when little Barry has trouble finding his mother.
We had a bumper crop of lambs this year. Freckles gave birth to triplets (Suzy, Sammy, & Spot) and Limpy gave birth to quardruplets (Bobo, Booboo, Annie & Oakely). These are all adorable lambs, but Annie and Oakely have become the favorites here at Bear Valley Farm.
We sure enjoyed having Annie and Oakley living at the house (garage actually) while we fed them and raised them and loved them. But the time has come now to bring these adorable lambs to the barn, where they belong. Come watch the move to the touching music of Tchaikovsky.
The shadows are growing long and sun is going down on Bear Valley Farm. Night has fallen, and it is time to bring the lambs into the barn for a good night's sleep. But first they must play. Prepare yourself for some serious cute as you watch our lambs frolic in their pen.
Ferrari was born to Norma on March 3, 2017. Jeffrey was born to Grandma on April 4th. In between we experienced our one and only snow storm of the season. Come watch our little lambs take to their short-lived winter wonderland in stride.
Bootsy's unusual markings really threw the herd for a loop. For a few days the sheep regarded Bootsy with suspicion, if not fear. She was just too different. Poor little Bootsy. Will she ever be accepted by the herd at Bear Valley Farm? Watch this video to find out.
Meet the last two lambs for this season at Bear Valley Farm, Toro and Tula.
The births were not without incident. Somehow, Teardrop lost sight of Tula in the darkness of the large pen and failed to bond adequately with her second baby. Not to worry though. Tula will be well taken care of.
What a beautiful May day it was. Come see an amazing sunrise along with a rainbow, spy baby geese on Chester lake, behold a contented dog, see hungry sheep, laugh at playful goats, then take another look at Annie and Oakley, the two most adorable lambs on the planet.
As more and more lambs arrive it is necessary to integrate them together, which is not always a smooth transition. Sometimes the mothers become aggressive toward "foreign" lambs; but this year brought an easy transition. Come watch little lambs together and meet favorites, Spot & BooBoo.
Come see what a typical noon-day feeding is like for two cute little orphan lambs. When you start bottle feeding you can't help but get attached to these little ones. Annie and Oakely have won a special place in Farmer Tom's heart. Perhaps you as well if you watch this video.
Probably the cutest most adorable little lambs ever captured on film frolicking in the morning sun. Suzy is our resident loud mouth and Spot steals the scenes she is in. But pay close attention to Annie and Oakley, the stars of this vignette at Bear Valley Farm.
Hooray! Babysheep gave birth to triplets (Bambi, Bootsy, & Buzzy). All three are healthy, but Bootsy is the real looker. She has multiple black and white markings. But make no mistake, all three lambs are adorable. Come watch the first days of some very special new lambs at Bear Valley Farm.
The snow, what there was of it this year, is gone. The cold of winter is losing its icy grip at Bear Valley Farm. Spring is in the air, and the new grasses in the electric meadow are calling. Come watch our lambs graze to the haunting sounds of Pink Floyd.
Our 2016 Fall Lambs have grown up and it's time to say goodbye. Lucy and Lulu found a wonderful home at a farm near West Bend; and as you will see in this fond farewell footage, our lovable lambs made some new friends to ease the transition.
