The Cotswold girls are a little overdue or my calculations are a few days off or both. One of the ladies definitely will have twins, if not triplets. She is so big, she grunts trying just to breathe. She squats to urinate every few minutes, so there is not much room left inside her, poor girl. The other two are not as large, not even by half. It won't be long now, but the weather is not cooperating at all. It was minus 14 last night and only got up to a high of zero and is back down to minus 10 already. I sure hope she waits until morning to have those babies. I do not have experience with Cotswold sheep as mothers yet and I am hoping they are like the Icelandics. Icelandic sheep go off to a corner, pop out the lamb or lambs, clean them off and have them nursing in a few minutes, then the lambs are up and playing. Compared to the Angoras, they are a dream. I am hoping the Cotswold girls will be as great at mothering as the Icelandics. Fingers crossed!
