Since my sheep
escaped moved into the nearer field, I can see them from my window, at least when it's light enough. This morning I could see a small white blob next to a large white blob: lambs!
I quickly dressed and walked across the lane with my lambing kit in hand. There was Gregor with two perfect little lambs, a ram and a ewe. Then I saw that ewe 160S also had two small white blobs with her, a ram and a ewe. Two easy births, four lambs, no fuss. I did the Cabbage Patch dance and a little bit of Running Man while singing "Go sheepses,go sheepses!" and I don't care who saw it.
I moved them all into the maternity orchard (our garden) behind some electric fencing, just until the lambs are big enough that a fox won't take them. Ewe 160S has a touch of mastitis, but that's manageable.
What a great start to the day! Our new total: 10 surviving ewes, 18 lambs.
