    It's mamalisa, but the darn 'puter won't let me log in.

    Twins born this morning, the one morning I sleep in 'cause the kids are home and will feed and let everyone out. So I haven't seen them....

    One more ewe to lamb. Talk about a tiny lamb crop. This ewe is a first-timer, so I'm watching closer......

    They are ewe lambs. Now to name them....

    dumb question....do sheep have a discharge after birth? All the other mammals I know do.....

    Well they should pass their after birth and there is often associated goo for a day or two. A lot of ewes will eat the afterbirth quickly. If the lambs are nursing quickly and she is releasing milk its a good sign the afterbirth passed, just not a 100% certain sign.
