2013 Lambing Comes to an End

Two Peas in a Pod!


The last ewe had her lambs yesterday morning. It has been a cold Spring and it made for some complications for our lambing season. We had to treat two lambs for hypothermia including one of the lambs that was born yesterday morning.  So much for lambing on pasture, that didn't happen this year! Most ewes and lambs had to be brought in and put in make-shift lambing pens for the first few days.

We had a lot of twins this year which is always a good thing. We also had quite a few ewe lambs which makes me happy since we were hoping to add to our numbers and ewe lambs is the easiest to do that.

Other than the cold weather and a couple of losses I think overall 2013 was a good lambing year.

I look forward to the coming days of watching lambs out on pasture. There is nothing as cute as bouncing lambs, one of the highlights of  sheep farming!
