U & 2 Others!
Wild Rose Farm "U" At The Barn Gate
As we suspected this morning, U was ready to lamb and had this single ewe lamb around 4 PM. Then two more ewes had singles out in the pasture today. When we brought the ewes in for the night, one of our Rambouillets had a single lamb and she stayed there with it. Here are the sheep below coming in at dusk.. The ewe in the lead is #47 & she's due any moment now. We also penned up another ewe in the Loafing Shed - she had separated off in there, so we set up a pen around her. It helps to keep other expectant mothers from stealing a lamb!
Wild Rose Farm Flock Coming In At Dusk
After we got some pens cleaned out in the barn, Mr. WRF went back out at 9 PM & brought the Rambouillet ewe & her lamb to the barn. She was a bit skittish and I watched the LED light moving slowly towards me at the barn while I got water & feed ready for her ... we came in from the barn at 9:45 PM.
