Life's Little Surprises

We don't castrate our male sheep. It's a part of our quality of life philosophy. One of the side effects of this policy is the occasional unplanned pregnancy. These twins were born on Sunday when it was 17 below zero. Even though this was her first time lambing this ewe knew to pick a sunny spot out of the wind to have her lambs. We found a cozy spot with a heat lamp for them in the barn. Mother and lambs are doing well.
