First lambs
« on: April 06, 2011, 09:12:37 pm »
One of our shearlings, so first-timer, who had triplets on board, lambed a few days early today.

The third triplet was tiny and dead. But she likes the two she's got and they're feeding well. Brought them in as it's very windy still though the rain has eased.

They look fine and sturdy  :)  Looks as if the weather for the next few days should be fine - here's hoping the forecasters have got it right.  That wet and windy spell has been very bad for lambs so lucky yours to be in a nice warm shed.
Do something today that your future self will thank you for - plant a tree

Mixing in lambs ewes with new mums/lambs, advice please
