We've had three sets of twins born in less than 24 hours, plus a big (slightly stuck) single boy born yesterday afternoon.
More photos and a lamb report below. . .
We're all a little surprised.
Current lamb count: 23. Mamas: 11. Ewe lambs: 14. Ram lambs: 9. Sets of triplets: 3. Sets of twins: 6. Singles: 2. Pregnant ewes remaining: 9. Number of first time mothers doing an awesome job: 4 out of 4 (so far). Number of freshly baked chocolate chip cookies I had for dinner: just one big one, though I'm hankering for a second (but then I'd have to trade my glass of white wine in for milk, and I don't think I'm ready for that quite yet).

© FarmgirlFare.com, where it's never a good idea to leave the grilled cheese and homegrown beef salami sandwich you're making for your sweetheart's very late dinner cooking on the stove while you leave the room (first mistake!) to make some quick lambing notes. Black looks very good on sheep, but not so much on bread. I'm blaming sleep deprivation. Or cute overload. Probably a combination. Probably I should have fed him cookies for dinner.
