Surprise lambs!
« on: June 17, 2016, 08:26:28 pm »
This year I decided not to lamb as I was going to be short of grass but it seems that I had a very enterprising tup lamb and one of my ewes give birth to 2 tup lambs last night. It seems that my other 3 are pregnant too. All due any day now as there was only one day and night that he could have caught them. At least we have plenty grass now.

 The best laid plans ......... :innocent:

 Same thing happened to me, but in my case it resulted in 2 ewes having twins in mid Jan, when lambing was planned for mid April.
 Fortunately I had enough grass for the 6 of them so didn't need to feed them a load of concentrates, and I sold the lambs fat a few weeks ago at 90 apiece. So quite a lucrative "mishap".
Rules are made:
  for the guidance of wise men
  and the obedience of fools.
