Scottish Black Face Lambs!

Yes! We have our first little lambs on the ground! Quite a surprise to wake up to. Twins, a boy and a girl. They were born on March 4th. I thought they were early but remembered that this ewe got out and went to visit the ram while he was still supposed to be in quarantine. Little hussy!

So first we have the boy. His name is Windy


And here is the little girl, Marchie with her Mum.

It was a sunny day but bitter cold ( Way below freezing) and the March wind was howling! Hence, their names :)

They're all doing great so far. Amazing how much weight they've gained already. I'll take more pictures tomorrow.

The other two ewes shouldn't be too far behind so I'm watching them very closely. One is as big as a bus! Can't wait to see how many lambs she has.
