Lamb update

About 10 days ago Noah had twins and about 5 days ago Tirzah had twins (1 ewe, 1 ram) and Hoglah had a big single ram.  We’re currently at a total of 6.  Just waiting for Micah now.

The new lambs spend a couple days in these field jugs to get fully acquainted with their mothers and stay out of the torrential rain, then they are out with the group and the lamb games begin.

Lambing season has begun

Mahlah had a big sturdy ram lamb a week ago.  The other four ewes continue to develop their lambs.  I’m so glad that they waited through the nasty weather we had this last week.  I’ve begun to think of them as The Ladies in Waiting.
