Post Finally some girls!
We've had two girl lambs within two days!
Rather a nice change after a string of 10 boy lambs in a row & 5 male calves all in a row too...not to mention the 4 colts born in a row!!!
The one that has lots of black markings is the first of our 2nd generation sheep, we bred the mother :)
The one with the neat black head is out of one of our new stud ewes by an Alurama type 5 ram, so rather chuffed that we got a girl!

Apparently I spoke too soon regarding yesterdays girl lamb...the ewe was having a half time break & delivered two healthy girl lambs this morning for breakfast!
