The life of a traveling, reading, writing, spining and knitting shepherdess.

Twenty.  Twenty lambs out of twelve ewes.  That’s a 166.7% lambing average.  Which is phenomenal for me.

Last night it was Hettie having a set of ewe/ram-dark/white twins.

They are healthy and happy and as my dad likes to say, “Goers”.

This morning it was Diana’s turn to have her first lamb, a very healthy little ram lamb who looks like a party on four legs.

Twelve ewes lambing means that I am 3/5 of the way through lambing.  Of the eight ewes expecting, three are first-timers and the remainder are experienced ewes.  The new lambs are perfectly 50/50 ewe/ram percentage so far.
