2012 lambing has begun...

Well lambing has begun on the farm.  Mary graced us with twins this afternoon in her usual no-fuss way.  She is such a good Mama!  Mom, baby girl, and baby boy are doing well and they both weighed in a at a hefty 10+ lbs (our lamb scale tops out at 10 lbs- apparently we need a bigger one!). Both lambs are white so that is a nice addition to the white flock.  We'll have to come up with a name for the girl, although the boy will probably be sold this fall. This bring our current sheep total to 22 and we have 9 more ewes to lamb- yikes! We have a couple of ewes that lambed in December though so they won't be lambing again till late summer.  Shearing is coming up fast on March 26th so hopefully we don't have any more lambs before that.
