Bree is an excellent mother just like her dam and granddam. I checked to make sure her milk was in, then stayed by to make sure the lambs found nourishment and Bree didn't get carried away with cleaning (causing injury at the umbilicus). Bette was actually trying to hop a little before I headed for my warm bed!
This morning all was well. Looks like both lambs are musket, and I think they are going to be everything I've hoped for from this cross of Nightcap on Blake offspring.
I took the little family out for their first excursion at noon after I turned the rest of the ewes and lambs into the pasture. Today was perfect for it; we're supposed to hit 70 for the first time this year. Blaise was very interested in the new lambs; when I put them back in the lambing jug, she ran the fence and got into the storage end of the fold trying to follow them.
That's the good news today from . . .
