Lambing moved into high gear today. The first lambs were born last Thursday and through yesterday (Wednesday) I had 16 lambs. Today four ewes lambed with 9 lambs and I think one more ewe will lamb tonight. Of those 25 lambs only 6 are rams!
This is Linda cleaning her second lamb. That’s steam coming off the lamb.
The lamb is trying to get up within 10 minutes of birth.
It’s always amazing to me to see lambs instinctively search for food. They know where to look for dinner. Did you know that the mom’s licking of the lamb stimulates the sucking response?
These lambs were born yesterday. See more lamb photos on my website .
