What did I tell you?

Babies come when they're ready, not when the book says. My grumpy ewe gave birth early this morning, on the tail end of a horrendous rain storm, to a single ewe lamb. It was an easy birth, my only contribution was to put some iodine on the lamb's navel, then back away from a seriously hormonal new mom giving me the hairy eyeball and stomping her foot.

I just hope her daughter doesn't inherit her mother's temperament.

All baby animals are cute but lambs have more than their fair share.

Congrats. Hope all the rest are as easy.

Ok, not your most "in focus" picture, but still pretty cute. I'm curious though, why does the ewe still have raddle chalk marks all over her? Does that not wash off?

Congratulations to Grumpy! Hope the rest of the births go as smoothly.
