Room for two in there?
Wondering who Cary is? Meet her in A Tiny Tail For Mother's Day.
Cary is a twin, and her father is a twin, so there's a good chance that Cary could have twins. This photo was taken back on Febrary 22nd, when I realized that Cary had begun to look wider than all of the other sheep.
More below. . .
There's definitely more of Cary than there was this time last year.
And now that she's been sheared. . .
It looks like there's a very good chance she could have twins.
Some of you might remember my mentioning in December's Cary update that within 24 hours of putting Studly Do Right Jefferson in with the girls to do his One And Only Job last fall, he'd jumped Cary's bones - which means she'll be one of the first ewes to give birth this year. And it should happen any day now. I wonder if she'll hire The Nanny Bear to help out.
Don't worry - she's more excited than she looks.
NEWSFLASH! Make that should be any minute now. It's taken me a couple of days to get this post up, and meanwhile Cary has just gone into labor! Needless to say, we're both a little frantic. Cross your hooves and fingers everything goes okay!
Update: Sadly, Cary didn't have twins, and everything didn't go okay—though thankfully my baby is safe. You can read about what happened here.
