Hey look, they can have twins!
This morning was busy. Besides tagging and docking the 4 lambs from yesterday, I found Aislinn with a big ewe lamb, and trying to deliver another lamb. I soon found he was coming breech, with one leg bent at the hock. I couldn't get it straightened out, so Chuck came and lifted her hindend off the ground. This gave me room, and I straightened the leg, and with a little pull, out he came. Miss Nibs and her twins are doing just fine now. The ewe lamb is Rylie. They are sired by Larkhall, making them 25% Loyalty, 25% Carryhouse R1.

Tie the skein in 4 different places so that it does not get tangled during the dyeing and rinsing process. Be sure to leave it loose so...
