Ha ha ha! Mamma cow does the same thing! It's when they are regurgitating their cud, looks like a hiccup, but I want it to be a contraction!

Hang in there!

I've been told it is just her bringing up cud but I have never seen any of our sheep do what she was doing. I swear they do these kinds of things on purpose.

Never judge a book by their cover, also never judge a pony by their height. They tend to be big personalities in little packages.

Big surprise no lamb and showed no signs of an impending lamb when I put the sheep in tonight.

Belle sadly has had a still born ram lamb, very disappointed as he was a lovely fella with really nice markings. We almost lost Belle this winter so we are very sad to not have a live lamb from her.

Panda starting them young

This is why our sheep never need teaching to eat and weaning. Our first pair of lambs are already eating hard food and they aren't every 24 hours old yet.

The smaller one with the smaller spots and more white is called Pirate his brother is called Poseidon.

Elska's turn to lamb, she had a huge black flecket ewe lamb called Eostre. Eostre is the Germanic goddess that Easter was named after.

Demeter is the Black ewe :) Dionysus is the ram, he has lovely markings and I have been told they are very rare, however he is tiny so not sure how he will turn out.
