Beautiful sunny April day
Today was such a nice day, with a crisp breeze blowing from the north. The lambs didn't mind at all, they so enjoyed the sunshine......they run in packs.......and just run and run.....we call it Lamb Races.
It occurred to me that you might be interested in how our lambing went this year. We started with 25 bred ewes, the first lambs arrived Feb. 9th. We finished March 21st with a total of 42 lambs. Two sets of triplets, multiple sets of twins and several singles. They were very kind to me, very few late night lambings and very few lambing problems.
No bottle babies this year. I love bottle babies, but it's much more restful if the Mom's can handle everything on their own. And our visitors really love bottle babies!
