At long last, we have begun. Here's the first of the 2009 lamb crop! They arrived this morning, starting around 9:00am (so thoughtful, these ewes of mine, to wait until I was awake!). The ewe also had triplets last year, but since I had announced to the whole flock that I'd rather everyone just have healthy twins this year, I was sure they would all respect my wishes! Everyone seems strong and healthy (took this picture about an hour after they were all born--sorry about the poor lighting), one black ewe lamb, one white ewe lamb, and one black ram lamb. They are basking in the glow of the heat lamp. Now let's hope mom is up to the job of feeding them all, without my help.
