The ewes, which were going to have a year off from lambing this year, started lambing last week! Porter, our handsome black ram climbed through two fences to get to the ewes last autumn and although he was only with them for five days, ten out of 22 ewes were pregnant! As he was with them for such a short period of time, the last three ewes lambed this morning and it is all over in less than 10 days.
I like this!
All had twins, most of which are beautiful, big, healthy lambs.
Today, the sun is shining and we have put three mothers outside on some fresh grass. It makes the late nights and early mornings all worth while.

There was so much nest material -
