I assisted her with her first lamb who was positioned correctly and I felt better about going knowing that the little black ewe lamb that she had just had was doing fine. The other two ewes where just hang'n out.
We came home within two hours. I went into the house to change and slipped out to the barn to check on everyone. I walked in to see six little wet lambs all together with the three moms around them.
It was not obvious to me who belonged to whom and I don't think they knew either. Everyone appeared to have nursed, but what confusion! It just figures that they would all have to wait until I left to delivery and I honestly do not know who belongs to who! These will all need to be DNA tested...I had to do this a couple of years ago with a ewe and two lambs. I used three different rams and they are all really nice, as are the ewes and the lambs? Well, five ewes and one ram.
I put lamb tags in and recorded them, but we will rely on the DNA to tell the truth. That ended up being quite and expensive dinner date!
I took pics. after I fed everyone, so of course I was interfering in nap time.
This little girl was covered in hay. I don't know if you can see it but she has the wooliest head....hmm, just like her daddy maybe?
This is Eve, I put her in the mix Monday morning, March 30th she delivered her twins, Katmoget and Moorit ewes. Tagged immediately and recorded...no mistakes on her.
...so it goes....
