The Commander came inside this morning and said I needed to come out to the sheep barn – now! I arrived to see Zoe nursing two new lambs.
The “dry” lamb was a ram and he was moving very slowly. I figured he was a candidate for a bit of goat colostrum to help get him going, he drank it with gusto.
I decided to name the little ewe lamb “Belle Isle”, both she and her brother are jet black. The final tally for birthings this year is; 3 Icelandic ram lambs, 1 Icelandic ewe lamb, 2 Cascade ram lambs, 1 Cascade ewe lamb, 2 Nigerian Dwarf bucks, and 2 Nigerian Dwarf does.
