Sweet New Lambs

I got to the barn the other day and this mama had just delivered a beautiful set of twin lambs. It looks a bit gory but that is the afterbirth that comes out after a ewe has delivered. 

Here are a couple of close-ups. Nice healthy babies. They are in their own pen now and in a couple days they get let out to fun with the others. 

And here are some of the older lambs. Such a size difference quickly in the beginning.

We are up to 49 lambs so far with many more to come. We are having a break in the cold weather. All the snow has melted. That is good and bad because it does get disgustingly muddy when the ice starts to melt. Our dirt road has been in such terrible shape there have been times when I didn't know if we would get home. This too shall pass but it seems like we have had a lot of melts this winter and then back into the freeze. Still a couple months to go but I am looking forward to seeing signs of sugaring season coming soon.

My 6-year-old son is smitten. I love showing him your lambs every year. :)
