We have had our first lamb of the season today. I had a slight miscalculation with my dates. I had figured the first one to be due in about 10 days. My husband was looking out the kitchen window this morning to see a little lamb standing in the barnyard. He called me at work, with a slight tone of panic in his voice. He scurried outside to gather up the new mother and her lamb into a corner pen in the barn. Numerous telephone calls to me over a short period of time to walk him through the experience.
He insisted that I come home early from work, by the time I came home he had everything well in hand.
After revising the due dates, I've informed him that approximately next Wednesday or Thursday he will get to experience this again, as we have two that will be due.
Pictures below show a new little ewe lamb that looks to be Katmoget, grey out of S29349 HarvestThyme Autum Thyme (Moorit) and W00735 WhisprgPines Mercury (Grey Katmoget)
