More lambs--they just keep coming!

We finally got some little red lambs this morning. Number 109 gave birth to twins, a ram and a ewe. With temperatures in the low 20s and a stiff wind, the little lambs were shivering, so they got sweaters or blankets to help keep them warm. By the time these pictures were taken in the afternoon, everyone had warmed up and snoozing in the sun seemed to be the order of the day!

Here's the little tunis ewe lamb.

And this is her twin brother.

I had to move some of the older lambs out of the jugs to make space for the newer ones, so these are now out in the mixing pen, where they can play with one another. This first picture is Arabi's Lacey and her "masked" ram lamb.

These are Amelia's twins, born last Sunday. The little ram lamb has a white poll and the ewe lamb is completely black.

Chocolate Chip and her ram lamb, who will be a week old tomorrow.

And these are two views (I couldn't fit them all in one frame) of the rest of the flock out in the pasture. They will be brought in as they lamb.

That's all for today!
