So far today has been our second biggest. The second lamb of twins was just born. This set is the 4th of today plus we had a single (9 lambs). Last Thursday we had 5 sets of twins and a set of triplets. The night is still young.

Busy morning; 4 set of twins.
41 moms out of the 60 that were bred.
72 lambs.

This year we’ve had a couple of ewes reject one of their lambs. Here I am hold one of these ewes so that her unwanted lamb can nurse. The lamb has been sneaking milk from the ewe and sometimes she will let it nurse.

Biggest day this year.
6 sets of twins, 1 set of triplets, and a single

Lee got a workout tonight cutting back and forth to bring down each ewe while I carried lambs. He had to stop one of the ewes several times trying to run over the top of him.

As of March 19th at noon we have 91 lambs from 50 ewes; 43 of those lambs were born in the past 5 days.

We’re now counting down till the end; 10 ewes left to go.

This morning my wife let out a few families after spending the night in pens. Most of them left the barnyard out to the field with the rest of the flock. One lamb got left behind. Wendy patiently led this lamb from the barnyard out to the field towards the flock; waiting for and making sure the lamb kept up. Wendy led this lamb until mom came running down to her lamb.

Good girl Wendy!

We’re done lambing. 60 bred ewes delivered 111 lambs. We still have 3 families in pens; 2 bad moms and a set of triplets where on lamb is not walking quite right (back end is not straight). We have to hold the bad moms so their rejected lamb can nurse. The crooked triplet is getting more coordinated every day; we’ll wait to let them out until that lamb can get around better.
