First Lambs This Year

On Monday evening, Briar and Kaya lambed almost simultaneously- Kaya with twin moorit ewes and Briar with just one little moorit girl.This morning I went outside to find Fable with new twin rams, one moorit and one black. This concludes the arrival of all of the Tornado lambs this year. His lambs were all born within about 12 hours! As usual, the moms are doing a good job of lambing without my help and taking taking great care of their babies.

I took some photos, but due to the flash from the camera, I had difficulty getting any without glowing eyes. It's cold and rainy here, so the new families are confined to the barn.
The lamb count is now 3 girls and 2 boys. There are 9 ewes left to lamb, so stay tuned!

The first 2 photos are Kaya's lambs, next is Briar's girl (to the right) and below are Fable's boys.

P.S. If you're interested in lambs, and see someone you'd like, drop me an email at locksleyfields@gmail.com Many of this year's lambs are for sale and can be reserved early.
