Spring Fest Meet the baby lambs!

■Grand Sheep March《“Love” written by Sheep》■

Special Valentine Event! At Mother Farm’s famous “Grand Sheep March,” the marching sheep move in such a way to write out different symbols. Spring is a time overflowing with hope, birth, and love, so the sheep will spread out across the pasture forming a heart. One lucky couple will also be able to enter the heart and profess their love!! In order to move the sheep around, perfect coordination between the shepherd and sheep dogs is needed. Come and see this display of exquisite coordination between man and animal.

■A Lamb’s Story■

Spring is for the lambs as well as a time for new life. Watch as the newly born lambs grow, from their birth to when they separate from their mother. At first, they are inseparable from their mom, but not long after they can be seen frolicking with other lambs and grazing all by themselves. This day-to-day transition is what makes up the “Lamb’s Story” and it is about to begin.

■Raising Sheep■

At the end of the birthing season, it is time for mother sheep to turn their efforts to raising their little lambs. After spending a short amount of time as mother and child in the birthing pen, the pair are united with other mother and baby lambs to get used to living with the herd. Seeing other sheep for the first time, the lambs are overflowing with curiosity. Check out the lambs at play, teasing each other, throwing tantrums, and all.
