Maybelle again leads the way, with the first lambs of the year…once more right before the end of March. She also gets credit for the first two lambs born in Michigan. They are both males, and were sitting waiting for me when I went out to the barn a moment ago.
They are still wet, and she is continuing to lick them off. But they’re up and nursing, and appear as spry as Maybelle’s lambs always are.
She is by far our most consistent lamber: twins every single year, all six of her lambings. Have we really had her that long? She was among the first sheep we bought. Amazing how time flies.
