The sheep are continuing to birth, last night was rather hectic with a pair of hypothermic lambs whose mum didn't want to be caught and another ewe with a stuck lamb that needed catching.  Both girls are now in the shed with their babies enjoying the dry conditions!

Saying that it has actually been dry today which the alpacas have been enjoying, the girls have gone from sheltering to sunbathing in less than 24 hours.

The first three girls due to birth, Oonagh, Sienna and Lualeni are looking rather large, closely followed by Willow, Little Miss Irraquoy and Mary.  I'm hoping that the weather will improve before the girls start birthing.  Oonagh is starting to bad up now so I'm still thinking she will be first.

Carol and Dave popped over today, Carol had some more knitting, whilst they were here they fed all the lambs for me, who are due their bedtime feed now, so I'd better got and mix up the milk!
