I went down to the barn at 8:30 tonight to do my usual check and discovered that Sweet Pea had started labor. The first born is the light colored one at the front. I had to help both onto the mom and I am sure that the dark chocolate one is drinking. I fed the light one a tablespoon of colostrum from her mother and she bounced right up. Both are ewes, which I consider to be a blessing.
I have not settled on a theme for the year, so I am taking suggestions. Aren't Merino lambs cute?
Snow Pea, the white ewe from the previous post, is likely to deliver in the middle of the night or tomorrow. She is standing and does not look comfortable.
