It was mild, with low winds(that are colder) with sun today.. a perfect day to have our first set of lambs join us for 2019..
There momma did a great job, the twin ewe babies are doing well
and the whole family is moved into a nice draft free jug, momma has her warm water with molasses, and has started on her milking grain ration
along with as much fresh hay as she can eat..
There are a few more checks to do and the first 72 hours is always the trickiest but so far things are looking good.
Momma needs a rest and the babies need a nap and then if all goes well on the check I will see babies up and nursing with little tails a wagging..
Lambing has officially started for 2019.. off to a good start!
What gorgeous babies, congratulations!
Thank you.. they are just darling!
Love the sooty nosed one … and the white one seems to be smiling and thinking, ‘phew, made it.’ 😀 … congratulations to Mama and to you all. What a wonderful chilly Spring gift. 🙂
I was so glad it held off just a touch for the better weather, it just made things so much easier for everyone. A number of very expecting girls to go yet.. Its always a good thing for them to be born in the cold weather, it really helps create a nice healthy herd of lambs. I am so pleased with our first births and of course thrilled to have two ewe lambs.. I really like Milkdud as well.
So sweet! How many ewes will be lambing this year?
If everyone caught and everything goes well, I have 8 ewe’s that should be lambing. I can tell a number of them are carrying twins (which is normal) but I think two might have singles from the looks of things and one could have 3, she is massive.
All these darling baby Lambs!! So wish I could have some! Enjoy and awesome shot!
Thank you so very much 🙂 They are so sweet
