Day 2 has been a mix of happy and sad moments. The sad moment arrived with a still born lamb. His mom was a young ewe, and this was her first pregnancy. It was only one (not twins like most Icelandic sheep have), so it was larger and too difficult for the new mom to push it out. Fortunately the mom is doing fine and already out on the pasture.
The happy moment arrived with a new little lamb - he arrived at around 1:30pm. Mom started licking him right away to dry him out, and he started suckling immediately. Before 3pm the lamb was already making little attempts at jumping and fully enjoying his new-found freedom.
Outside it is snowing and in the 30s, but the new lambs and their moms are in the lambing stall with plenty of hay and heat. However ... as soon as you open the door they jump out excited to run on the grass.
Our piglets are currently 2 weeks old and still with their moms. We are expecting them here on the farm 3 to 4 weeks from now.
