At about 1430 hrs. this afternoon, Lacey finally began her delivery in earnest, delivering two lambs. This morning she was very restless and wouldn't eat much. I spent most of the day near the monitor in the office. Lacey usually lambs quickly but this time she kept dragging her feet. It appears that both are ram lambs. Yes...it is VERY apparent that the talk I had with Skittles went in one ear and out the other. I will double check myself later just to make sure I did get the sexing correct. I was trying to dip navels, check sex, and was getting licked by Mum all the while. It was clear I was interfering. I stepped back and let this wonderful mother take over and do her job. She's in heaven. She has two babies again.
Well, Skit! We're halfway though lambing. You'd better darned well have a ewe lamb up your sleeve somewhere, Bubba! So there! Remember...we are all replaceable! (Shh...don't tell him I really don't mean that. I just want him to think about it for a while)
