Baby pictures

I had the opportunity to have my flock ultrasounded last week. The senior students had a chance to practice sheep ultrasound and I found out who was pregnant. A win-win situation. As I expected all the sheep were pregnant (except for 3 I held back to breed for State Fair lambs next year). Most sheep except for the 2008 lambs, have twins. That was also expected.

Can you see the lamb?

By the time we were finished I could even pick out the lambs, although I can’t tell on this photo. It is fascinating to see the little rib cages and see the little feet moving around.
