A second set of twins, boy/girl this time

Our black and tan ewe (we didn’t get around to naming everyone just yet, haha) just finished birthing a pair of evening lambs.  We are monitoring right now, the ewe looked a little weak, but a small poke on my part and she got up and wobbled over to the udder, so it looks like both probably got some colostrum.  We’ll be back out around 8pm to see if they still look good.  We may delay dipping the cords until tomorrow, the first set of twins did ok with the wait.

For this ewe, it’s the first lambing and the mothering instincts are a little nervous.  The other ewes have left plenty of room and Bucky, the father is pacing away in the ram pen, which is still kind of cute and charming.

This is going to be a restless night, but both the ram and the ewe lamb look pretty sturdy.  Here’s hoping.
