A Little Activity

And when we say little, we mean a little activity.  Only one more ewe gave birth yesterday.  Boy, are we hoping for more than that today, although weatherwise it is another very wet and soggy day.

Anyway... Rosey Posey blessed us with beautiful, healthy twins - a ewe weighing 11 lbs 2 ozs and a ram weighing 11 lbs 10 ozs.  They are out of our wonderful older ram, Liam.  Rosey is a veteran mama so everything went very smoothly.  They are Border Leicester - Coopworth - Wensleydale crosses.
Here's hoping that the weather settles down this afternoon and we can get some of the older lambs out of their jugs and into the field... fingers crossed.


  1. sweet little ones! it might be only a little progress, but at least it's still progress! :)

  2. They look so sweet! I'm wondering if it's just my computer or are the twins a little yellow? If so, will they stay that color? I never knew there were so many different types of sheep. I find all of this so fascinating so thank you for sharing.

  3. Easter: You are blessed with a lot of newborn lambs in this special time! I hope that soon the weather will chance into better! Here it is sunny and beautiful since several days, and I tell the others, that West-Virginia carries the bad weather for us... May the sun shine in your hearts, may all be happy and healthy and spend a sacramentally Easter. Greetings!
