Signs of Spring are upon us!

I spent some time down in the barnyard this morning and have confirmed we are having lambs! In this picture to the left is "Rose". She is filling out, and with 6+ weeks to go she has a swollen vulva as well as her milk bag is starting to swell. 
This is a top view of her from the front, man is she getting big! These will be her first lambs and I am thinking she may twin for her first time. "Rose" is big like her dad "Harley", but just the same she is getting big fast!
Belle is also showing signs of lambs. She carries her lambs well though, she barely gets big and then pops out 2 healthy twins. This is going to be "Belle's" last year of having lambs, she's getting up there in age and has been a great mom. She has done her part of restoring this heritage breed and made her mark with her beautiful lambs.
All is going along well and with 39 days until Spring it can't come fast enough!
