Rain Doesn't Stop The Lambing!
Our last check Saturday night ended with Wild Rose Farm Dorset #109 having a set of twins - one of each. A field check this morning found Rambouillet ewe #329 getting ready to lamb. By 9:30AM, she had a single ram lamb in the pasture & it was just starting to sprinkle. We got them up to the barn easily and the rain was light, but finally got a little harder in the late afternoon. The 6:30 pasture check found 1st timer WRF Rambouillet #408 with a lamb about as far away as she could get from the barn. Another good mother & she followed us carrying her lamb up to the barn.
Group Of Barn Lambs - Triplet 01E Looks Good!
Just completed another pasture check in a gentle rain .... at least it's around 55 degrees outside & nothing is happening!
