Wide Load

As you can see by the pictures we are getting closer to lambing.  The nine ewes we bred are all looking bigger, some look like they are going to twin, some just a single, and then the other, namely Rory, looks like she will have a triplets or maybe more!  Of course Rory (see above) is our 50% Gotland, 25% Shetland and 25% Finn so is a bit bigger already than the rest of those in the flock.  Apparently Finn sheep are quite prolific so I wouldn't be surprized if she didn't pop out 4 of them.  I wonder if at this point they sense what is coming?
