We have 3 ewe's that I know are pregnant. One was so large, I was sure she was carrying twins. Well this morning as Don was feeding, he heard the common deep "Baaaa's" and a little high pitched "baaaaa". He ran over to the sheep paddock to see a tiny lamb standing between the 2 older ewes that we have. Both of them seem to be protecting the lamb. I went out to see the new edition and caught sight of something else. Another small lamb lay dead further down by the fence. So now I am left to wonder...did both ewe's give birth last night or did only one give birth to twins with only one surviving?
On a brighter side, I entered these pictures in a photography contest sponsored by the Miniature Cheviot Sheep Assoc. I hope I win!
