Sunday, April 6th was quite the busy day. Love Potion #9, one of our Finns, decided it was time to give birth. This is what she looked like before she gave birth.
She lambed her babies all on her own and so at 7:25ish in the morning, when Tim went out to do morning chores, he was alerted to that fact by Jack, our Border Collie, who sniffed in the air and immediately ran to the sheep pen. Sure enough, there she was a few feet in where Tim couldn't see what Jack sniffed from the front steps. She had two ram lambs with her and a stillborn ewe.
We are now very nervously awaiting how many reside in this 54 inch diameter body! Update: Since I was having trouble posting this until now, please note that there will be another blog post as Lumi has lambed her babies on Thursday, April 10th.
