Cedar Pond's Gudrid And Her New Lamb

 Cedar Pond's Gudrid had her little lamb 3/5/2017. I was surprised she had only one lamb, last year she had twins. She was certainly big enough that even the shearer predicted she'd twin.
Gudrid and her ewe lamb are both doing well. The weather has given us quite a challenge though, because we've had snow and frozen ground since the weekend after last Thanksgiving. We have to keep moving big boards and panels around under the barn eaves to provide little temporary pens for the new mothers. We'd hoped to have fences and stalls done by now, but my sheep are such good and smart moms they've figured things out and in spite of the lamb jugs held together with baling twine and bungee cords , all my lambs and their moms are healthy and thriving.

Cedar Pond's Mahlon Has A Ram Lamb

 This little ram lamb is the son of Cedar Pond's Mahlon and Puddleduck Jonas. He was born 3/3/2017.
 My 6 horned ewe Mahlon had a ram lamb. He's so cute ! My granddaughters were over this past weekend and were happy to hold my little bundles of spots.
I love lambing season.

Cedar Pond's Inga Has Twins !

 Cedar Pond's Inga had twin ewe lambs 2/26/2017.

 Inga is a very good mama and her twins are both healthy and thriving.
 Two of my granddaughters were over this past weekend and decided to name the twins.
 This lamb is Ivy ,
and her sister is Iris.

Twins ! ~ First Lambs of 2017

 Cedar Pond's Tovah had the first lambs of 2017, twins !

Tovah lambed February 4, 2017. The sire of her lambs is Puddleduck Jonas. She had a healthy ram lamb and ewe lamb. Both lambs are doing well and so much fun to watch. Thus far I've had no new lambs but have 15 more ewes due to lamb. Just hoping they don't all decide to lamb at the same time.
