I was finally able to get blogger to load my other picture from yesterday's lambing.
I got to thinking last night about when this ewe lambed the last time. On the Dorpers since they are not registered and are basically a meat source I don't keep real accurate records. I used to write all lambings on a calendar, but if you notice all pictures I take are dated. This ewe with twins born yesterday, April 14th are a ram and a ewe. Both of these are large good size lambs.
I had taken several pictures of her last lambing to get all the triplets in the picture, not noticeable in these pictures are the markings under her neck and the white spot on the top of her head. These lambs were born on September 27th, 2013. That is 5 lambs in less than 7 months. This ewe is on her own Star Breeding system. The triplets were fairly small and she did end up loosing the smallest ewe lamb. Had I taken it and bottle fed it, it might have survived.
And today all thoughts and prayers to the people in Boston and especially to the first responders.
