A day ahead of myself

I've been thinking it's Tuesday all day today and was going to blog about twins Tuesday, but seeing as it's Monday I can't call it Twins Tuesday can I?!

We've had 5 sets born today, plus a single tup lamb.  Most of today's new arrivals have been boys which isn't very good for our organic growth of the flock, but with plenty more left to lamb hopefully the girls will catch up.

He's one set of chunky boys an hour old.
On the alpaca front all is well, Oonagh is getting fatter by the day, I'm sure she will beat her sister to birth.  There is lots of hormones in the girls field at the minute with everyone entering the latter stages of their pregnancies.

Oh I do like this time of year, new life always puts a smile on your face.

Lovely lambs! Great time of year - but as soon as I see it is a boy, I think - castration, hate it!!
