Mum!! Come And See!!! QUICK!!!!!
I rushed outside on this blue-skied morning and peered over the fence into the back paddock to see a ewe licking a very-still-white-object on the ground in front of her. Two minutes earlier, the lads had noticed a wobbly-legged lamb standing next to its mother, and as they watched, its twin was born!!!
Ten minutes later, umbilical cords still attached, the newborns were both standing, being gently nudged by their mother towards her milk.
We keep zipping outside every few minutes to check on progress, and to see if any of the other heavily pregnant sheep are having their babies.
Spring has arrived early to The Sunny Bay!!!!!!!!!
