Juno had twins this morning - a ewe first (head, nae feet) and a tup. All doing well. Like Jinx, she's a bit low-slung but the lambs seem to have cottoned on to kneeling pretty quick.

Jinx's are wee porkers :-)

So, just Jura to go; expecting a single today, but she's an awkward b*gger, so I bet she makes me wait.

Soooo looking forward to an unbroken night's sleep :-)

How is the ram lamb from the other day? Did he make it?

No, he didn't. Died about 6pm on teh day he was born, despite my very best efforts. I think he had been brain damaged in the birth process - he hardly moved, other than breathing and heart beat. No bleating, and only slight head / mouth / limb movements. :-(
