I had bought colostrum and milk replacer "just in case". I made up some colostrum milk and he took to it right away. Since then we have been supplementing him, till Lialac's milk comes in to support all three lambs.
I finally weighed Button Wednesday evening, now mind you that he was born early Tuesday morning, about 1am and he has been drinking very well. He weighs 2pounds 14oz. at approximately 40 hours old.
I don't think I've every seen a sheep this small.

Cori was bred with Duroy our white ram.
Not long after these Sparkling decided to join in and have her lambs too. Not until much later did I realize that I didn't take any pictures of her, but she delivered to us a set of twins, one ram and one ewe.....at least, so far we will have one ewe to start our dairy flock.
