What a time to breed a sheep for winter lambing. The breeder did have a big barn, but it was not heated, just protected. The ravens have been hanging around the other sheep like crazy, and I sure hope they do not find the newborn. Last year four lambs were lost to them. They peck their eyes out and then carry them away if they are small enough, or just eat them on the spot if they are too large to carry. Bad birds.
Anyhow, the pregnancy indicator is now swollen and facing up, which means she is due. Tomorrow goes back up to around zero, but the days that follow are very very cold. I may have to move her to the barn, if she does not deliver tomorrow, though she is wild and very hard to handle. My fingers are crossed for healthy babies tomorrow. Come on little sheep mamma, tomorrow please.
