Lambing Update - May 12th

The lambs continue to arrive safe and sound and at a rate of one ewe per day. I wonder if this is going to continue... :)

On Tuesday, Ewenique Tatiana delivered a nice pair of BFL cross lambs. One ewe, one ram. Both appear to be grey. The ewe lamb was getting a bit of a slow start but after some colostrum supplement courtesy of DH (Dear Hubby), she is doing just fine. She is much smaller than her sibling so we'll be leaving them in the lambing jug for an extra few days to be certain that she is getting enough to eat and is thriving.

Last evening, Fibreworks Easter delivered a HUGE single ewe lamb by FirthofFifth Aman. I purchased Easter from Vicky Foster last Fall and this girl has already earned a special place in my heart. She is the sweetest, friendliest ewe I've ever met. Easter is shaela in colour. Her ewe lamb appears to be black but I'm reserving judgement on that for a few days.

Pics of the new arrivals will be posted soon.
