View From Kitchen Window Through Early Morning Fog
Today was a day for singles at Wild Rose Farm. We started with Rambouillet #405 in the front paddock at 7:30AM. We spotted her going into labor - the closest one we've been able to watch from the house this spring. There was no rain, but it was a foggy, misty morning. It didn't take her very long to deliver a single ewe lamb.

The fog started to burn off and we brought them up along the driveway to go to the barn.

Later during the afternoon check at chore time, we found 2 other ewes with single ram lambs in the main pasture group ... That's probably it for today!
