Ellen sure did a good job for you hope lambing is progressing and you get many ewes.
Yesterday evening our oldest ewe, EllenG, had triplets and made it look easy. It never occurred to me that she was carrying three…she looked like a “normal” twinning ewe. But here they are…2 ewes and a ram…and all nice sizes right around 9.5 – 10.5 pounds. And very spunky, too! Great job, EllenG.
Thanks, Pumpkin! The triplets are doing well and we have 4 more lambs as well. The only ram lamb is Ellen’s so far. As you know, the ratio can change very quickly so I’ll make no predictions as to what the end result will be. As long as they’re all doing well, we don’t really care whether they’re ewes or rams.
As always, Pam, the sheep look great! Just loved the photos of the rams – what a good looking group!!
I don’t think it’ll be too long…lot’s of “blooming” udders out there!
The other ewes…still waiting…
still at least a week to go
The sheep look great! Keep up the good work, both of you!
Lot's of action under EllenG. everyone is making a run for the milk bar!
