Athena's First Ewe Lamb

The lovely Athena had a wonderful set of twins last Monday. Our 5-year old Coopworth x Border Leicester ewe had given us 5 lambs the past three years - all rams! So this year we were patiently waiting... and waiting, and finally this first-born, 7 lb white ewe appeared. She was followed shortly thereafter by a really nice silver and black, 8 lb 2 oz ram lamb.

The happy family is shown below, a few days later, with little Mr. 932 making himself right at home in the feeder.
