Last night ( just as we were about ready to end a long day!) Chance our big white ewe opened the lambing flood gate and a seemingly effortless labour resulted in two tiny black and white lambs. From a vantage point on top of the hay pile I watched as all the other ewes silently left the stall leaving the heaving ewe all alone for the birthing process. Throughout the whole procedure, there wasn’t a sound. The other heavily pregnant ewes waited in little groups patiently out in the rain. As twin number two fell into the straw, the waiting ewes quietly filed back into the stall but kept a respectful distance from Chance the new mom.
Only another 11 to go !!!
Time to go and check on all our babies, take care, keep safe. M
