When will they be lambing? pics included
« on: February 04, 2015, 06:37:48 pm »
Our tup went in on the first week of September so I know they will be lambing soon enough but there is a couple here that I think will be lambing very soon but I'm looking to know from the experts (you guys ;) ) if any of you know when they should be lambing? Thanks in advance

If he went in on the 1st sept could see lambs from 24th jan though normally takes a few days for them to start cycling which they do every 17 days ish through breeding season, so 17 days on from 1st would put them at 9th feb ish to maybe go for it,
I'm in a phone so can't get pic up very well but couldn't see much of a bag do they have one forming normally find when it looks to be full of milk and she looks fit to pop their still hold them another week just to keep you on your toes ::)

Ive been checking them twice a day and they all have big bags but some of them have bigger bags than the others, one of them looks ready to pop any day now as her bags are massive just couldnt get her to stay still long enough to get a pic lol :D heres for hoping thanks guys :fc:

I've had ewes waddling up the field like an overstuffed sofa and ones that looked like a champion Holstein milker and they were a good six weeks off lambing.

Book an important, non-re-schedulable event and watch them pop :D

Within next 2-4 weeks depending on whether first timers or not. My older ewes are bagged up and due from 7/3 but I find first timers don't bag up until last couple of weeks or even days. I have one ewe slightly bagged and sloppy bum but raddle mark says 7/3 so hope she keeps her legs crossed!
