Miss Erin is spending a lot of time in March "lambing"! This means that a lot of new baby lambs are being born, and she is helping to take care of them!
When you see Miss Erin, be sure to ask her about all about lambs. She knows a lot and has some very cool facts about them!
Here are some links to some websites that tell you a little more about sheep and lambs!
