Spring arrived early here......

... with the arrival of these twin boys. I arrived home from shopping the other day to the sound of new lambs baa-ing. Fortunately mum had already bought her kids up to the 'maternity section', they're a spoilt lot, my ewes, they like being stabled at night when the lambs are small. for more twins, especially for the young ewes, so they are small like these and easy to dilver.

No, not many, Hazel. Only 11, enough to keep the Spring growth under control before the fire period in Summer. We can't afford to leave this place unstocked. The little ram lamb on the right is such a cutie, knee high to a cricket.

So do this second set of twins, Hazel. A ewe and ram lamb this time, born last night. Nice small lambs, she would have popped them out easy. I wonder if I'll get triplets this season? Two ewes are looking huge.
