Two more have delivered. Tara had triplets at 2:30am during the blizzard "Stella". She had a beautiful brown ewe lamb and two ram lambs. All are well and unbelievably now a week old! Next was Mini Me our Finn/Romney ewe. She delivered twins on Mar. 21st. One was a big black ewe lamb pictured and the second was a tiny white ewe lamb. (someone got all the groceries from Mom). The tiny white one didn't want to nurse or stand very well. The next day we had to bring her in the house to give extreme TLC. She is coming along but remains in her play pen by the fire. She eats a small amount every 3 hours. We are hoping that she continues to gain strength and can rejoin the flock soon. We have one ewe to deliver but she was bred late so it might be a few weeks. So we can catch up on our sleep for a bit!!!!!
Hi Folks! I am a little behind on the lambing updates. :) So here it is in a nutshell. Sat. night Leena a first time Mom delivered twins at 2:30am. (yes that was indeed the coldest night of the year). The ewe had severe hypothermia but I got her back with the use of a hairdryer. Took about 2 1/2 hrs. She is doing great.
This morning we had double the fun. Kiki delivered triplets at 7:30am and Karina twins at 8:30am. All are doing fantastic! So that puts our count at 29 lambs on the ground, 18 ewe lambs, 11 ram lambs and 3 ewes to deliver.
The picture is of some of the older "a week" lambs enjoying todays sun before the snow hits. Will be so happy when sunny warm days are the norm.!
Today brought Priscilla our Finn/Columbia cross delivering quads. Unfortunately she delivered between the 3am and 6am check. We lost a big ram lamb but have 3 healthy ewe lambs ! Priscilla is a wonderful mother. With the Columbia added to the Finn these lambs are much bigger than the purebred lambs. The girls weighed in at 7-8-9 lbs.......... So we have two ewes delivered, 10 to go and 8 lambs on the ground. The quints from yesterday are doing great! (second picture)
Thank you for visiting our farm! We raise purebred Finnsheep. My husband and I both have agricultural
