Bob knew how bad I felt about losing our first lamb of the year, so he went and bought a camera set up for the barn. It came with two cameras! They alternate and I can now watch the girls from the house. Right now it is set up in our bathroom because it is on the side of the house closest to the barn and gets the best signal. I will move the ewe "jugs" to the front of the barn soon and then we should be able to move the tv next to my bed.

Right now we have them hooked to an old black and white monitor we used on the miniature horses a long time ago. The camera had been knocked out by lightning but we kept the monitor.

This is the view from the camera aimed at the "Ladies in Waiting" pen. These are the ewes that have started "bagging up" and will be next to deliver.
This is the second camera, aimed at the newborn jug. The new lamb is behind Binkie, that's a feed bowl to the right. I love to watch the baby playing.

They are the Swann brand twin-pack wireless cameras from Radio Shack for $199. The range is limited because we have a metal barn.

Bob is now looking for a way to use them as a web cam so I can check from work.
