Lambing went smoothly, for which we are thankful. All our ewes lambed without assistance and are raising their own lambs – no bottle babies. It was the year of triplets. 3 ewes had them, though Snowball is the only triplet mama whose babies all made it. (Ginger’s 3rd was stillborn, and one of Rose’s got on the wrong side of the fence from his mama – management lesson we’ll keep in mind for next time; like we did for Snowball, triplets need a small pen at first so the ewe can keep track of them all!) The lambs are 4-6 weeks old and acting very energetic! One ewe lamb and several wethers are still available.
