New lambs!

April 15, 2016

We are in the full swing of lambing and grateful for the fine weather this week. Most ewes are dropping sets of triplets with ease. Bob helps a few with more difficult births. I shot live video on Facebook if you want to see the birthing process. (A few viewers thought it was gross, so discretion advised.) There is also video (below) of cute baby lambs jumping around the pens.

Here is my favorite lamb so far. I call him Milk Mustache.

Milk Mustache is one of triplets. Our good Dorset ewes are highly productive, great mothers, and milk well.
