I think that’s it, unless there is one more ewe to go.  My old ram seems to have missed a few of his girls.  But of the 14 ewes that lambed we got 31 lambs, a set of quads (only 2 survived birth) and 3 sets of triplets.  About 50% rams 50% ewes.  Everybody looks pretty nice and no ewes with issues.

February has been an unusual month here.  Warm temperatures and everything is about one month ahead of schedule.  I’ve been able to get a lot of field prep done and I’m all ready to start lambing in the first week of March.  The ewes are in very good shape.  It doesn’t look like any of the ewe lambs are pregnant but I guess that is pretty much to be expected since I pulled the rams out by late November.
