There has been a lot of action in the barn.  It seems that every day there is a birth.  The count is around 26 and for the first time we have been raising this rare breed,  we have had mostly girls except for two boys. One of the first things we do is to check the sex of the animal.  Females  have a much higher chance of living.  

The barn is filled with animals in varying degrees of diarrhea.  Good-bye are the black pellets and now to pancake batter.  It can be a  gagging experience.

We banded tails and it seems so cruel but necessary.  They can be cleaner without the tail.

We had a set of triplets and all is fine.  The smallest lamb must push and shove to get a lick.
