The wait begins as of today, the girls have marked their 147th day since their dates with the rams. The picture to the left is "Rose" who seems to have dropped today. I was pretty sure when we took her for breeding she was in heat that day. We are a bit worried about her prolapsing but we will wait and see.
Here are "Rose" in front and "Belle" in the back. They are heavy with lambs and it is any day now. I get so stressed out this time of year, I wish for easy births and healthy, happy lambs.
"Belle's" utters are big and ready to feed her lambs. The wool around them naturally falls out as the utter expands so the lambs can find their milk.
The most important tool to have during lambing season is the "Lamb Cam". This gives me and instant look at what is going on down there. I can here every sound, even the crows and people who stop by to see the animals. So now we watch and wait for the true signs of spring, lambs!
