Today started at midnight when I went to the barn for a last check. I found a small lamb near Jazz who was obviously not done with lambing. There were two more lambs trying to come out at the same time.
All are OK now although that little one is sure small (only 4 .2 lbs) and I’ll have to keep an eye on him.
When I went to the house I left Laura in because I thought that she would lamb next. She was lambing when I went out in the morning, but during the night two other ewes had lambed. Fran had twins and…
Pamela had twin lilac (gray markings instead of black) rams. While I was moving sheep around and making more pen space two more ewes lambed. That’s 11 lambs, bringing the total to 44.
Here is what my barn chart looks like.
This is Dina with her lambs.
The lambs are getting playful. There will be plenty more jumping lamb pictures to come.
