Our last lambs were born today- two more ewe lambs, yeah! These belong to #801, who was a small yearling who did not look very big-in-the-belly, so she surprised us with twins! It’s a relief to have all the lambing over with, I plan to move all the sheep back down to the pasture on Saturday. The grass is growing, so the timing is good.
Our lamb crop statistics this year, for what they’re worth with a small lot of sheep:
- 200% lamb crop (6 ewes, 12 lambs born)
- 17% mortality (2 lambs died)
- 7 ewes, 3 rams
- All but one ewe lambed during the day-very nice!
