Surprise!

Last weekend, P and W (my sister and brother-in-law) went to Houston for a birthday party for his mom.  The Bearded One and I were left on our own to care for the critters for a couple of days.

Things went well on Saturday then Sunday morning when I went out to feed the sheep in a drizzling rain I got a surprise.

Twins!!!

Twins!!!

P + W had suspected that one of the ewe’s, Connie, was pregnant but did not think anything would be happening soon.  SURPRISE!  Twin lambs!  A little boy and a little girl.

lambs one dayDos, the ram, hung out the first couple of days with Connie and her lambs.  I  thought he was being protective (even though he is not the Dad) but P & W says he has baser motives.  He wants to get lucky at the first possible moment.  Sigh.
