Here she is just a few minutes old.
Momma was busy cleaning her up while the after birth came out. This momma usually has triplet but apparently in sheep, they only have 1 placenta so once that comes out they are done. Darn, we were hoping to see the 2nd lamb born but this time there was no second lamb.
That's ok though, it was amazing watching the first hour of this one's life. She tried so hard to stand and kept falling back down. Logan and I found ourselves holding our breath everytime she tried to stand up. Momma just kept drying her off the whole time. She is a really good mom.
Almost there. Those back legs sure are slippery. Yay! She finally stands up! And we got to be there for it.
We are still on lamb watch and really hope to get to see a delivery. But missing the actual birth does nothing to take away from the miracle of seeing a newborn baby start it's life!
I have some really good pictures of some of the older lambs I'll post later. I have to go tutor now. What an amazing start to this day!
