After all the waiting the first lambs of the season have arrived!

Amelia gave birth to twin ram lambs this morning. Most of the family was there to watch the births, and the pregnant ewes looked on through the stable doorway. Ram lambs this year will be named starting with the letter V (ewes will be E). So without further ado here is RF Valiant.

He's more of a lover than a fighter right now (hopefully it stays that way) he is the oldest by about 10 minutes and weighed in at six and a half pounds.

And here's his twin brother RF Valentine.

A little more shy but with a wonderfully soft fleece. He weighed in at six pounds.

Mother and babies are doing well. I think Jewel will be next and she could be very soon.


  1. Those are BIG twins! Congrats on the start of your lambing season!

  2. Yay! I'm glad to hear all are doing well.

  3. So glad you got to be present for the special double delivery!
