Moving Along

Finally a little activity on the lambing front yesterday.  Rosey was kind enough to have big, wonderful twin rams right in the most lovely patch of sunlight.  Her first born weighed 12 lbs 8 ozs, and the second weighed 14 lbs 7 ozs. 

The second born, Little Mister 1313 was very vocal from the moment he hit the ground.

Grace, a soon to be first-time mama came racing into the barn to see what all the fuss was about.

Later in the day, Faith, Grace's twin sister, gave birth to a black ram with beautiful wool.  He seemed small but weighed 11 lbs 1 ozs.  We've posted a short video, 'Faith's First Lamb' that shows Faith shortly after giving birth.  It shows a little bit of the confusion that a first-time mama goes through before getting used to their new role.  We're so proud of Faith, she is doing a great job. 

And as a grand finale to the day, we had to give a little assistance to Princess as she gave birth to a whopper of a ewe lamb, weighing 15 lbs 12 ozs.  It's hard to tell from this photo, but she is huge.  We'll try to share a better photo later.  This little one had a rough entry into the world, but seems to be doing great.

More tomorrow... have a great evening!
