And finally
« on: April 16, 2013, 05:49:56 pm »
We thought this ewe was due on 12th March but have been waiting and waiting.
Today she delivered a large ram lamb we have called Tomos. Its not surprising he was large as mum has been fed an extra months rations  ;D
She had been in labour a fairly long time so OH decided to help out (first time for all of us). Luckily he was presented correctly but it was a bit of a tug to get him out.
He was just 4 mins old when I took the first pic and about 20 mins old when I took the next one.
Life is like a bowl of cherries, mostly yummy but some dodgy bits
