I have a zwarble X texel 2 year old who took the ram from my calculations around the end off march she is definalty in lamb as she looks like a tank she has bagged up lien in the shelter looking rather uncomfortable I've checked her a few time but nothing so I'm just leaving her to it now she is still eating an drinking fine?

If due end of March, she would have been served by ram end October/first few days of November - does this fit with your reckoning?  Did you raddle/mark the ram?
