Lamb Twins

Tawny lambed late Sunday afternoon, our first set of twins. This picture was taken early Monday monrning. Our ewes are young and the first time they generally have only a single lamb, but as they mature twins are the norm with occasional triplets. It is said that a well-managed Katahdin flock should acheive a 200% lamb crop each year, e.g., with a flock of 9 ewes we can expect to get 18 lambs each year.
