Finally Some Lambs

The event that I most look forward to, after shearing of course, has finally arrived. I always find it a little like Christmas, wondering what my little lambs are going to look like and how many rams to ewes are born. So far four of my girls have lambed, all twins and six of the eight are ram lambs. Most of my moms are first timers and did well. Nick, our livestock guardian, had to care for one lamb who was chilled. He was a tiny litle guy and couldn't keep up with his mom and brother and was out in the rain. When my husband found him, Nick was lying with him. These dogs are worth their wight in gold! Enjoy the pics.
