This evening (24th April 2014) the ewe pictured below has given birth to twins. The first lamb was born with assistance from Andrea. Both lambs, a ram and a ewe are quite large and have very long legs! Mum is doing a great job and both lambs were on their feet and feeding when we left.

EWE due today

Four beautiful lambs born today. We have three more ewes in lamb and are due to give birth in about 8-10 days time.

 

Wednesday 2 April 2014:  Our two young Lleyn Ewes have today given birth to single lambs.  They are first time mums and are doing what Ewe mums do naturally.

The first lambs born a couple of weeks ago are out in the field and enjoying the spring sunshine, springing around and incredibly playful.

On Tuesday 18th March our other Lleyn Ewe finally gave birth to triplets – it was well worth the wait.  They are beautiful lambs and mum and lambs are doing well.

On Sunday 16th March one of our Lleyn ewes gave birth to two lambs, a ewe lamb and a ram lamb.

The Ewe minutes from giving birth was very restless, getting up and down, lying on her side, grinding her teeth and looking to the sky! Please enjoy the photographs below.
