Notable Midwifery tales:
Just the three lambs born today.
A set of twins out of a young Drysdale ewe (sired by Gilbert). Very quiet ewe for first time around – except with the dogs! She was going to try and pound the dogs into pulp. LOL But she was willing to follow us and the lambs up to the shed. 🙂 Lambs were a ram and a ewe.
And then there was a nice ewe lamb sired by the new English Leicester stud ram.
Finally over 50% of ewes lambed now! Quite a few very large ladies so hopefully they will get it over and done with quickly!
