Harriet the Sheep won the "lamb race" this morning with a gorgeous set of twins! We have one ram lamb and one ewe lamb.
This is pretty much what I saw when I went out to check on her this morning, only the lamb was quite a bit wetter:
He thinks he is hot stuff.
The ewe lamb is a lot more conservative. She sticks by mom most of the time.
Harriet could not have picked a better day to have her lambs. It got up to 45 degrees today! Unfortunately, tomorrow is not supposed to be so nice, so I decided to make coats for the lambs. (We had some cria coats, but they were WAY too big for them.)
Looking at our other ewes, I believe we will have two more lambings this week -- Betty and Marge appear imminent. Sally looks like she wants to hold out for a little while longer.
So, we have lambs on the ground! Does that make it officially spring yet?
K writes this stuff, for some reason that has yet to become apparent.
