We have Twins!!

We were not expecting lambs until August or September so these were a surprise arrival. LaVern and I have never been shepherds before but we are sure learning fast!! We did the around the clock feeding, every 4 hours for the first two days. The lambs would NOT suck and LaVern was sure they were not getting milk. He milked the ewe each time and we fed them the milk with a drencher. I kept thinking something is not right. They didn't act nor look hungry but we tried everything to get them to use a bottle. Nadda. Then on Friday morning we went out to feed them and they both were up nursing! I think they were nursing all along. ha ha
The names: we have a Lan, a Lin and the mama is Lotion. Lan o Lin and Lotion.
More to come as I have more pictures to share. A second blog ahead of this one!!
