Jackie's lambs

Yesterday Jackie gave us twins at noon! How thoughtful to think of her shepherds! She is a first time lamber so the experience was a bit overwhelming for her and us until she got with the program. She had a ewe lamb (spotted) and a ram lamb, both CVMs. The importance of a lambing jug was exemplified with this mother ewe. The jug(small pen) forces her to be near the lambs constantly and for them to be able to nurse as easily as possible. Today she is a full blown mama and darn proud of it, as you can see her lying with the lambs after they all had breakfast!

  1. The little ram looks like he could fly! I just love the spotted one.
    Congrats to mom on her first birthing!
