Sigrid cleaning her newborn lamb. She was so big that I was sure she was carrying twins, but she only had one.

Once again  Helga birthed two healthy, strong lambs.

Spring snow is no problem when you have a good wool coat and rich ewe's milk to drink.

Ewes are very protective of their lambs and will butt other sheep (and other lambs) away.

Growing fast.

Meal time.  Lambs punch their mother's udder with their noses to turn on the the milk.  They wiggle their tails when they are getting milk.  Shepherds watch for that with newborn lambs.

All totaled we had seven lambs from our five ewes, three singles and two pairs of twins.
