The lambing kit is by the door
No...not Christmas...lambing! Although it certainly feels like it could be December and I hear more snow is coming this weekend. Oh joy. Let us discuss other things......
How about lambing! That starts this weekend too! April 2, to April 15...just a short window this year because I couldn't keep Baa'rack in his pen with his girls. It's getting close and I'm getting excited/nervous!
I have a possibility of 5 ewes lambing. I only left them in the breeding group for 2 weeks so I could have missed someones cycle...although Baa'rack was pretty insistent around EVERYONE...except for Darlin'...but it could just be that I didn't see him going after her as much. He really liked Ruthie right off the bat though...and she's pretty hefty on one side.
I couldn't get a good picture of Darlin' because every time I go into the sheep pen she does this:
She doesn't look all that big anyway, but last year she didn't either and she popped out HUGE twins...so who knows.
Last year I thought she wasn't pregnant and she was the first one to lamb...twins...they were tiny though, 3 & 4 lbs.
Ada is HUGE. I don't know how much of it is fleece and how much of it is baby, but she's carrying at least one...I'd bet on two. She's been laying down a lot lately too (when she's not escaping out of the fence just to spite me) which means she's getting close. I had to pull last years lamb, I'm hoping this years lambing is easier.
Until then, we're all sitting on the edge of our seats waiting to see what happens....and hoping for warmer weather. There is the possibility of a nor'easter this weekend...We really don't need anymore snow.
