Lambing Scenes

Frieda, Iggy, and Izzy
Frieda's twin golden rams are almost identical. Izzy has a white spot on his head but Iggy has the white blaze on his nose. Handsome little guys.
Alice and twins
One of our oldest ewes, Alice, had twins, Izod and Ithaca, this year. In previous years she has had 3 sets of triplets and 3 sets of twins. One year she took a rest and only produced one large lamb for a grand total of 18 over the years. She is a loving mother and teaches her lambs the facts of surviving in the world.
Flashy, India, and Inky

Bottle Babies

Incense looks on as the other lambs frolic after eating their grain portion.
Black lambs
Vistitors Michael and Lauri are happy to bottle feed Irene, one of Faith's triplet lambs.
This is Incense who had a difficult start. She was only 5 pounds at birth and not as lively as some of the other newborns. She also had some breathing problems. Her tail became infected when we put the rubber ring on it to dock it. She recovered after intense medical treatment as you can see.
Black lambs
Tom pauses a moment to smile for the camera while he cleans out the lamb grain creep. Irene would like to help.

Faith and Ian about a week old.
