Soggy Lambing

Yesterday... on a day that could only be described as being fit for ducks...



















while everyone took refuge from the weather inside the barn...



















while Larry and Jack paced the corral like nervous relatives in the waiting room...



first, Diedre gave birth to a black ram, out of Poseidon, weighing 11 lbs 14 ozs


















then, maybe half an hour later, Hannah, had twin Border Leicester rams; the first weighing 12 lbs 7 ozs and the second weighing 10 lbs 4 ozs.  They are out of Aragorn.

Things are moving slowly - we are bracing ourselves for what is sure to be the
lamb-storm yet to come.

  1. Lamb storm? sounds like you are fixing to be very busy. I wish we had a little of your rain, I am already dragging the water hose around to my gardens. Have a lovely day.
