Spring Is Here

Lambing has commenced! The first lambs of the year are here, and what a lovely pair of twins! (These are soay x black belly barbados.) Spring is definitely upon us here at the farm.

This ewe has surprised me a bit, because she is older and isn't very big. But, she obviously produces very well. I have a feeling that this ewes daughter - (the other lighter colored barbados), will have triplets. She is twice as big as her mother.

The darker colored lamb is a ewe and the lighter one is a ram.
