Lambs…I got my times wrong!!!! I was sure the lambs were due at the beginning of November but obviously not because on the 30th September Baarbara gave birth to twins (2 little ewes) some time during the night.
I got home from work and there she was sat in the field with her babies…..later that day and Margo produced twins (1 ewe and 1 ram) as well and the next day Freyja not to be outdone had two babies (1 ewe and 1 ram) as well. So from 3 girls 6 babies …this is a big deal for us…when you only keep a few sheep and it is partly about providing meat for you during the year then it makes a big difference….and ewes some of which we can keep to go towards having breeding ewes for the future.
Our other ewes haven’t done anything yet but they could be due November…who knows!!
