Almost done.....

Pegasus had a set of twins yesterday morning - one of each.  These may be her last - Peggy is getting old, and I'm concerned that she might not be around another year.   She's got a lot of daughters here, and granddaughters and more... 
The lambs are healthy and eating well, and of course she is doting on them and they will probably end up some of the nicest lambs when we wean them.  She's always been a good mother and milks very well.  The ewe lamb is named Carondelet.  (named for a Civil War ironclad gunship. )

We've got 2 more ewes to lamb - one ewe lamb, and Somerhill Vivace, who should go any time now.
