Ewe's are pretty resilient. So as long as you keep things calm and you're not planning to subject them to a load of stress like chasing them around for a few hours, they should be OK.

Moving as in transporting in a trailer shouldnít be done in last 10% of pregnancy I.e roughly 15 days before due date. As long as you take it slowly, donít stress them and donít travel them tightly packed together they should be ok.
