Early Lambs

We bought some black Romney ewes last Fall on the understanding that they had been bred to lamb 2 weeks ahead of our main flock. It was close enough not to worry so we bought them. Well I guess the guys ram got out at least one day in September as two of the ewes had lambs earlier this week both on the same day and one of the coldest so far! Both had just a singles so we now have two lambs ,one black and one white. Ewes and lambs are doing fine though Rosa the dog is so excited I'm sure one of the lambs will have a heart attack or die of exhaustion as she is always there watching them. If Rosa is this excited over two lambs wait till the other 200 show up in April she will be the one with exhaustion!
