Our ewes are starting to lamb! Here is one who had triplet ewes last Saturday! Gertrude (the mamma) is an older sheep and we were hoping for at least one ewe from her for her last year (she has had rams for the last two years). They are all very pretty little lambs. She is an excellent mamma and keeps them in the loafing shed most of the time, especially since it's been very cold the last couple of days! Pretty soon as they get stronger they will get frisky and use hoping around as their primary mode of travel - especially in the evening. She was due after the 15th but we didn't really think she'd make it until then - she looked like a whale!
This Saturday Little Mamma had her lamb! A little girl! She has it in the loafing shed now, but it was born out in the rain. Little Mamma is a first time mom, and she's doing really good.
