This morning, we had 3 new lambs waiting for me at morning feeding time!
Jade’s purebred Tunis ewe had a single ewe lamb. Jade is happy about that because she can show the ewe lamb at the fair in 4H. The Tunis lamb looks pretty good but is a bit slow compared to the other two we had, but her mother is less experienced and she is smaller at 8.5 pounds. We made sure she got a good meal and she is settling pretty well.
Kelly, our Texel/Finn ewe had 10.5 pound twins, a white ewe and a white ram with a brown spot on his back. They were damp and already fed and jumping around this morning when I found them.
The two new families are sharing a stall with some of my younger ewes who get fed separately. I had to toss two of the young ewes out with the main flock as they were butting the new lambs too much, but the other two are more tolerant and got to stay.
