Notable Midwifery tales:
Fog and frost this morning. One ewe had her lamb dry and warm under a cypress, another had her twins near the alpaca camp. Both Drysdales and unperturbed by things such as frost!!
Ended up a gloriously sunny day, enjoyed by humans and lambs alike.
You’ll be pleased to know that tiny Tina slept all night in her crate in the laundry without a peep! Drinking really well now so palled up with Lil’ Dude with the kennel and a heat pack in the shed for tonight.
