Notable Midwifery tales:
Just two sets of twins for today.
One set of Drysdale ram lambs and a set of English Leicester ewe lambs.
This English Leicester ewe will certainly be relieved now – those lambs were 6.1 and 6.3kg!! (I’ve lost track of how many times I’ve told them not to overcook the lambs and make them too big… Sheep! They don’t pay attention! 😛 )
And I even managed some weeding in the garden today! Straightforward days are a relief.
Only a small number of ewes left to lamb now 🙂
