Ewenice Next

We slept in a little this morning and when I went out at 9:00 to feed Ewenice was in the barn with two brand new babies. From the looks of the babies and Ewenice (she hadn't yet delivered the afterbirth) I'd guess they were born an hour or so before. (First born is behind Ewenice.)
Here she is kind of giving me the stink eye! Of all the sheep she is the most distrustful. I don't hold that against her though; that's just in her Cheviot nature.

Total lamb count: 3 boys, 0 girls.

Thanks for the comment, I love all the little babies. Have a good day!

I'm sure the stink eye was because you were showing her the "udderly ez milker." So we have to wait how long for ewe's milk for cheese?

We'll give them about two months before weaning, then we can start collecting. If Ewenice doesn't work out (being too nervous and not liking to be handled) we still have the other four, so we'll have plenty! :)
