I am pleased to present...
« on: April 02, 2014, 22:31 »
Our first lamb...



Born about 7pm, sadly after her stillborn sister but she seems pretty feisty so fingers crossed. Mum very attentive but not much milk so had had a bit of a feed via a tube and hopefully mum's milk will get going soon.
Be like a duck. Calm on the surface but always paddling like the dickens underneath.

Well she is feeding well and the lamb is thriving. No signs of the other 4 ewes lambing but in theory today is actually only the first day they are expected.  :D

Well Annabelle is doing really well, she just needs some friends to play with. She is completely adorable and when Mum lets her she loves having her ears and chin rubbed.

I have on ewe who looks like she is about to pop. I swear she is as wide as she is long. She looks at least twice the size of the ewe that had twins. She is a sofa on legs! And she doesn't seem in the slightest bit interested in having these lambs. She's just mooching about, having a bit to eat and laughing at my 2-3 hourly checks!

Just you wait till your back is turned, she'll pop them out ...  ;) :lol:

Glad to hear Annabelle's doing well.
I try to take one day at a time, but sometimes several days all attack me at once...

Well she still hasn't produced anything and is even more massive! She looks like a child's drawing of a sheep - a fluffy circle with a few legs sticking out the bottom!

However one of the other ewes produced a lovely pair of ewe lambs first thing this morning who are both doing well.  :D
