The ewe that I was SURE would lamb first is still very much pregnant and one of the ewes that I was hardly paying any attention to, has just had a nice set of twin ewe lambs. Yep, I'm a sheep raising expert!
This was her first lambing, and she was smart enough to get in out of the rain, and lambed with no trouble at all. When I checked on her this morning she had had one which was already up and clean and proceeded to have the second while I puttered around pretending to do "chores" so I could watch. She's handling motherhood like a pro - she's a keeper.
I know lambs are cute, but I forgot just HOW cute! The two of them are already attempting play and if it weren't raining so much you'd have to put up with a lot more photos.
To balance out the cuteness, here are the drowned rats that I normally share my home with.
At the moment I'm thinking that me and my home will do just fine with out them...
See you when you dry out guys!
