Well this morning Amelia surprised me with the first lamb of the season here at Ridgeway Farm. A little ewe lamb that we have finally decided to call Derry (all girls are D's this year and boys will be W's) as she is a St. Patrick's day baby. I checked all the girls last night ironically and thought I was safe from lambs until the shearer arrives on Monday. Amelia didn't feel like she had very much milk so I am wondering if Derry is a little premature. My dates have her a week early.
Anyway mother and baby are doing very well. I am interested by the number of single lambs people are getting this year. Amelia had twins last year her first time out so I was expecting 2. That being said I am very happy with one little girl.
Better pictures will be taken in a few days when they can go outside.
