after our first big lad we had the pleasure of being blessed with a set of twins..... eeekkkk :)
i think that they are both boys - Stephen put the iodine on their navels and did not look at what sex they are (how could he not dear readers?), but from a distance i am sure i can see dangly bits :)
and taking us by surprise this very morning (ewe showed no signs of going in to labour), we are lucky enough to have another set of twins x
these pictures are especially for my mama as she was such a great sheep watcher whilst she was here...
this time i was here to iodine and give them the once over... two precious little girls x
one seems a little weak so it will be vital to keep a close eye on her over the next 24hrs - we hope that she picks up as she is so very white and very pretty x
we have one further ewe still to lamb and maybe another due even later - when our vet visited our half pint (remember her?) was showing no signs of being pregnant, but this morning she has started to shed her coat so we are still hopeful.
as for our other baby?
not so small anymore!
cricket has grown both in size and personality - as of today he can hop over his pen wall with ease, has had his first taste of pony poop, can wrestle like a maniac with miss mabel moo and has leapt in to a cat basket containing one very surprised cat!
he has two mama's as mabel continues to be by his side whenever talulla allows which is more and more each day -
i am sure that cricket and mabel will be best buddies which is great as my gorgeous beanie whippet misses the company of tallula so very much...... she seems unimpressed by the puppers so far, only going as far as a mini ear wash - she prefers to watch him from up high!
for now i must away to lamb check but i will be back soon with a post full of thrifty finds.....
i will not be swayed off course by cute animals.....
waving goodbye .......
