By the time we got out to the past, Janice does not move very quickly, the lamb had just dropped her lamb and was cleaning it off.
First Lamb is a Ram
We sat down and watched for a while and a second lamb was born. I entered the pen when the cattle started become very curious by the happenings in the pen. I helped the second lambs find the nipple so they could get that first drink of colostrum moving through their system.
Getting the first lamb to nurse while the second one gets cleaned
Still making sure the first lamb is nursing
Mother ewe and her little lambsBecause there is a significant storm moving over the area tomorrow, I am going to try to move a portable hut outside for the lambs and most pregnant ewes to utilize in case they decide to lamb tomorrow. I am planning on picking up cattle Saturday unless our baby decides to be born. I will let you know what happens.
