The first set of twins born on the farm. One white, one black, both ewe lambs.

There has been a long pause in the lambing around here. The last lamb was born Easter Sunday. All the ewes that should be pregnant look like they are; in fact they look like they have each swallowed a large pig. I think they will have to lamb soon or they will explode.

It has started to worry me, after all this waiting around they will probably all download within about ten minutes of each other. Most of them are first timers, heifer ewes if I can co-opt a cattle term.
