|Dorset #116 With Twin Ewe Lambs Just Before Midnight!|
At 5PM, the ewe that lambed just prior during the day was Rambouillet #333, a skittish 1st time mother with a single lamb. She had to be hazed/driven up towards the barn and didn't want to follow if her lamb was carried. She settled down later as she figured out what to do after she was penned up in the barn.
Total for the day was 1 single & 4 sets of twins.
Timing? 5:30AM - 6AM - 11AM - 5PM - 11PM. The ewe that lambed at 11AM actually had one in the pasture and delivered one in the barn as I watched. It's always amazing to see the birth and the ewe's attentiveness. We got in a run after lunch to Tractor Supply to buy a few more buckets, bungee cords, and a livestock wire panel to build more pens.
We'll try to get some sunny scampering lambs pics soon. Time for a nap! :~0
