First Lambs

When we put the rams in last fall for breeding we exposed the ewe lambs (or Tegs, yearlings) about a week before the main flock , so of course our first lambs were born to these ewes. The first one had a nice set of twin ram lambs weighing 8 and 10 lbs each which is a good size for a first time lamber. The next one had a single ewe lamb weighing in at 13 lbs. All are doing fine and I will turn them out into their own paddock later to day. The rest of the flock are not due to start till 4th April but a few could come early over the next day or two.
