And Two More Ewe Lambs!

Wild Rose Farm Rambouillet ewe #330 had a set of twin ewe lambs early this afternoon.  Yay!  It was a nice sunny day, perfect for lambing.  Here they are in the barn ..... to me, the newborns always look so small, even when they're a good size.  They are born with virtually no fat on them, but the lambs fill out nicely in a couple of days. 
Meanwhile, in the back 40, the other pregnant ewes do what sheep always do .... walk back & forth from grazing to the water tank to the mineral feeder, etc!   No one is looking like they're going to deliver this evening ......
