Shortly after the sheep were let out to pasture last night, we went out into the field to get the cow-for her grain. On the way we noticed this lincoln ewe in labor and ready to drop a lamb. I ran nearly a mile to get the camera, to share more birth photos!
The head and front feet
A healthy large single ram lamb. Born in the rain, this ewe took nibbles of grass between licks on her baby. I took a great shot of the placenta bubble exploding, but decided to spare everyone that detail.
One of the teeswater ram lambs (born a few weeks ago), came over to check out the lamb. He's up on his feet now and nursing, in from the rain.
