New Wild Rose Farm Twins
Wild Rose Farm #37 With Newborn Twin Ewe Lambs
Look at what came up to the barn this morning at the 5AM pasture check. Crossbred ewe #37, an old hand at this lambing thing, delivered a set of twin ewe lambs in the pasture. Mr. WRF carried them up to the barn and she followed right along. I could see him coming with his headlamp bobbing, so I stood back & waited so that I didn't spook the ewe. The afterbirth cleared as she walked up, so the lambs are a couple of hours old. Let's leave them in the barn to settle in ... she knows what to do!
WRF #37 Working On Her Lambs
Yesterday we had 2 sets of twins and a single born. Meanwhile, in another corner, we have a little nest of the #50 triplets oblivious to their new cousins. :)
