Lambing started March 21, 2020 - our Icelandic/Friesian cross ewe named Dax birthed twins. We named them Cory and Tina. With 20 more bred ewes yet to lamb, we are expecting a total of 30 lambs by April 30. Sadly, due to the pandemic, we are waiting until April 30 to announce opportunities to visit.
It's April 9 and we are now up to 9 lambs and still have 14 more bred ewes to give birth. Cuteness abounds.
April 12 and we are up to 16 newborns frolicking about the farm. Thirteen 13 are female, 2 male and 1 unconfirmed. 9 more ewes yet to lamb. Mortality rates have been low with one stillborn to an undersized yearling, and one twin who despite our best efforts after being rejected by mom, didn't make it past 48 hours.
