What a day
Around 5 o'clock I started doing my chores, and fed sheep! Then grabbed the two twins born today and ewe and locked them in pen! Put up a heat lamp for them tonight and tomorrow nights while it's cooler at night.(less than 40) Then put out a mineral block and grabbed hay and water for ewe in pen!
Then checked on Reba, since you guys know I have been waiting on her for like ever! She was fine and eating.
I went in and took a shower. Then came back outside in my pajamas to check on twin lambs to make sure they were both drinking.
(Random fun fact: I normally feed in my pajamas in the morning cause why not)
As soon as I walked outside I saw an ewe lambing. So I ran down there to see that is was REBA!
Reba and lamb are doing great and in the pen with others born today! (It's a girl)
What's funny about today and all the lambing..
The ewe that had twins earlier's name is Barbara Jean, she is the tallest ewe and we found it fitting since we already had Reba!
And they lambed the same day
I think we should keep the Reba trend going, should we name the new lamb Kyra and Cheyenne?
