Earlier today, our ewe Enigma (among the first of the lambs ever born to us, back in 2003) delivered two beautiful lambs. Then, when I went out to do the evening chores, I discovered…her daughter, Conundrum, had just done the same!
Interestingly, just like Mom, Conundrum also had one male and one female.
Both were up and nursing well.
The sheep pen is getting crowded. It’s quite amusing watching the five different mother ewes run around nickering at their lambs, while the lambs all frolic with each other. Know that line from the Bible about the sheep knowing the shepherd’s voice? They know their mother’s voice even better.
