The First of the Lambs
Thank goodness yesterday was a lovely warm day for these 2 to make their entrance into the world. The dark ewe on the left is Coco, mother to Rosie, the white ewe (they are both Romney). When I arrived home I couldn't tell whether one or both ewes had delivered, but this afternoon I had a closer look. I think that Coco acted as midwife! Certainly her udder doesn't look like it's in action, even though both lambs have tried sucking from her - also she is calling to them and they respond! Rosie had been with the ram earlier than Coco, so I was expecting her to deliver way before the others. Happy families indeed!
Here is the 'boy', I was able to give him a cuddle!
