Today is the first due date for lambs.
We will have two pregnant groups this year,
one due now and the other due in June.
These four girls are really close.

We have moved them to the back pen near the sheep shed and lambing jugs. This way we can keep watch easily. Checking on them in the wee hours of the night has started too.
Not looking forward to sleepless nights
but can't wait for cuddly lambs!
Ralene looks so close...
She should be first.
He tends his flock like a shepherd:
He gathers the lambs in his arms
and carries them close to his heart;
he gently leads those that have young.
