I came home yesterday evening to find my best ewe, No. 86, who normally lambs triplets, and one year twins, had lambed. Surprisingly, this year she only had a single. However, a large single – an 11 lb ram lamb.
I put her and her lamb in the lambing jugs overnight and this morning I ear-tagged all the lambs (yellow for ewe lambs and white for ram lambs) and then turned everyone out with the main flock.
This year the ewe lambs started with yellow 13 and the ram lambs with white 10, so there are two yellow tags (13 and 14) and six white tags (10 through 15).
Some random photos of the lambs in the main pen.
