We've just had almost 3/4 of an inch of rain with gale force wind, so all my sheep are wet, except for this smart girl who wasn't having her lamb out in the rain, thank you! Very Happy Her fleece is dry, the lamb is dry and strong, but I have her locked in the stable now to keep baby safe from crows , keep it warm and make sure it is drinking. Ordinarily the sheep won't sleep in the stable, but she knew a good maternity ward when she saw it. I assume this is a boy going on the size of his head, I'll check that out later. He nearly got up when I arrived with the camera then must have realised he'd seen me earlier. LOL. You can see the Border Leicester head shape already, but I think he(she?) is lovely all the same.

Thanks. You know, we think he is actually drinking while lying next to her. Our nephew just did a chaff delivery, for the ponies, and when he looked he was sure it was on a teat. Oh, and it is a ram lamb. The weather is deteriorating fast so I won't open the stable unless it looks like more will lamb today. If not I will just leave it open tonight, though they do have other dry spots they can lamb.

I've had to turf him out into the cold cruel world, sad to say. Crying or Very sad Well, I left the stable door open so mum can go out for a pick of grass anyway. If she's off it for too long she may bloat if she goes out and gets a bellyfull of it. This lamb already has a touch of diarrhoea, maybe from drinking too much. LOL.
It's always lovely, Gwen, when the new babies start arriving, I love you and I agree Fay, this little guy is cute. He has got real heavy little legs, no wonder I thought she was having twins, he was taking up a lot of room. It's going to be hard to guess how many they are having because of them not being shorn.

My pleasure, Val. I may go back out and shut them up for the night actually. She won't graze at night and I may as well give her some security. She's standing guard at the door. One last check on the others before bed too. None are off on their own so hopefully won't be any more lambs tonight.
