A few of the ewes at the East Farm presented us with several sets of twins over the weekend. Mike and Carl were able to separate the new families from the rest of the flock and get them into jugs. 

Yesterday we ran the remainder of the ewes through the handling system to sort any ewes who looked close to lambing (ten total). 

Both the ewe and her lambs are marked with Super Sprayline. We use the marker to identify which lambs belong to which ewes. Green is for twins, blue for singles and orange for triplets.
