Juno lambed yesterday. She was scanned as carrying twins, so I was a bit worried. In the end, she lambed herself - two tup lambs. Unfortunately, the second one was born dead. It seemed perfectly formed, too. Hey ho, just one of these sad things.

Juno and surviving lamb seem fine. She's got loads of milk and seems to like him well enough, so I'm happy with that.

Just Jura to go now. I wonder if she'll stop running long enough to drop the lamb or if she'll just pause for a moment mid-stride.

Sorry about the lamb.

I really enjoy reading your blog. Would love to have a small holding myself one day!
