Things here on the farm are going well. We have 16 lambs so far in the first week of lambing. There are four sets of twins, which leaves 8 singles.
The mama's have proven to be good so far. I have wanted to assist them but they have delivered unassisted thus far. We have 37 more mama's to go. With the Lord's help maybe they will deliver unassisted as well. The mama's have been good mothers.
Our dogs have been gentle and willing to learn as well.
Christina is my licker. She mulls thru everyone licking and bonding with the lambs.
Lacee is my sniffer. She smells the whole pasture and then comes thru the lambs and mama's smelling each one.
Sheba is their playmate. She looks after the lambs as their playmate watching them bounce and skip around the barn lot.
Judah has been in the ram pen for some time now. He came in with the lambs yesterday. He scared the mama's a little. They hadn't seen him in a while and ran from him. The lambs ran as well and he wanted to play with them but I wouldn't let him. He is still very much in training.
The girls seem to have matured faster than him ( which is normal). He is still very much a little boy in a big boy body. But he does a great job protecting his area.
We will try to keep you posted on the rest of this lambing season.
