We got our first lambs of the season this morning, twins. They were unexpected, but not a total surprise since I failed to get the February born ram lamb, which we were keeping, out of the ewe pasture until about August. That will teach me to get lazy. I may be having a few more girls dropping lambs here sooner than expected. This ewe had lambed in February of this year. She is 1/2 Dorset, 1/4 Suffolk, and 1/4 Romanov. The proud papa is 3/4 St. Croix and 1/4 Dorset. The ewe lamb out of this batch will definatly be another off season breeder! She is dark brown like her Romanov great grandsire and the ram lamb is white. Crazy genetics! Unfortunatly, momma doesn't seem to want to accept the ram lamb. We are keeping an eye on the situation and have already gotten colostrum into him to give him a chance. Both lambs are frisky, so far. I'm hoping that we can make momma change her mind about the little guy. Wish us luck.
