Day Old Lambs

Last night was cold and stormy, with maybe a little hail, all of which made me wonder how the lambs were doing out in the shed.

By morning, the rain had stopped. First thing, Glenda checked the lambs and they were doing just fine. Milo brought new straw bedding, which they seemed to enjoy. I spotted the two lambs together for the first time. They are very small, huddled in a corner of the shed.

In the afternoon, I let the mother out a bit to get some of the sun. Once the mother went out, the lambs followed her right away. They were both wanting to feed and I saw them feeding at the same time, which is good. From what I’ve read, there’s a worry that the mother would choose one over the other.
