Harley had a set of twins this morning – a ewe and a ram. They are beautiful!
Ok, maybe they aren’t beautiful yet…still a little wet and sticky! The ram lamb is the one standing up and the girl is taking a break. Harley ate dinner last night, but was acting a little funny. She was due today. I checked on her at 6:00 this morning and she was laying down in the corner, trying to be stoic and not let me see that she was in labor. Most of my ewes don’t mind me being there, but not Harley. She will practically cross her legs to keep her lambs in if I am in the barn 🙂 So, I came back inside and checked on her again at 7:00. They were both cleaned up and the girl was nursing. They are good sized lambs, the ewe lamb weighs 8 lbs. and the ram is 9 lbs. I love lambs!
Congratulations! I bet you’re busy now! 😀
