Newborn calves and lambies...
The last ewe in this bunch of sheep finally lambed yesterday. The poor ewe had dead lambs. She really wanted them and had them all licked off. We ended up turning her out with the other ewes and lambs and she bleated and bleated for her own lambs. I think she was so wanting to mother a lamb that she would take any lamb who would come to her, and I did see some lambs coming up to her. I wonder if she might be able to co-mother one or two lambs. It happens sometimes.
We docked another bunch of lambs today.
61 Lambs total
P.S. We heard and saw the first robin of spring today!
