The first of the lambs began dropping March 28th, 2012.
This week began with two sets of twins and was shortly followed by two sets of triplets within two days of each other. The first set was ten, eleven and eight pounds. Two ewe lambs and a ram lamb, all healthy. The second set of triplets happened over a 2 hour period with an eleven pound ewe lamb, a fourteen pound ram lamb and a ten pound ram lamb.
We have 5 more Cross bred ewes expected to lamb before the big push next week when 17 Pure bred ewes are expected to start lambing.
It is an exciting time at Wild Rose Farm with round the clock watches on lambing activity in the barn.
So far everyone is healthy and happy with 100% successful births.
Not much more we can ask for, except maybe a little extra sleep.
