And when we say little, we mean a little activity. Only one more ewe gave birth yesterday. Boy, are we hoping for more than that today, although weatherwise it is another very wet and soggy day.
Anyway… Rosey Posey blessed us with beautiful, healthy twins – a ewe weighing 11 lbs 2 ozs and a ram weighing 11 lbs 10 ozs. They are out of our wonderful older ram, Liam. Rosey is a veteran mama so everything went very smoothly. They are Border Leicester – Coopworth – Wensleydale crosses.
Here’s hoping that the weather settles down this afternoon and we can get some of the older lambs out of their jugs and into the field… fingers crossed.
