Rain, Rain Go Away!

Rain & Drizzle In The Pasture
The last 2 days have been rainy off & on. We had 2 sets of twins born yesterday - one set in the early morning rain around 6AM and one set around 2PM in a brief sunny period. We had to towel off the morning lambs and milk out a little colostrum to make sure the smaller, 2nd born of the two got off to a good start.
When Will This Rain Stop?
It's critical in weather like this that we keep up the lambing checks about every two hours. Here's my selection of farm footwear for every scenario!

Finally, a lamb conference in the barn mixing pen ... they had just finished racing around the hay feeder.  I think they are discussing their Kentucky Derby picks ...
