The Teen Weeks
We are entering the teen-age phase of lambdom. The lambs on pasture are 4-6 weeks old. It's that age when they like to travel in packs with other lambs -- except when they're hungry, cold or scared.
Then they go crying for mom.
The lambs are grazing now, and if need be, could live without their mothers' milk. However, most will continue nursing until four to five months of age.
