We also stripped out (milked) one of the ewes that had lost her twins in the storm. I taught two of our interns how to milk by hand - we agreed that it was clear why someone had invented a milking machine! We got 40 ounces of milk (which we'll save for future bottle lambs), and we'll try to catch her again tomorrow.

While the ewe that had triplets is a great mother, we decided to bring the smallest of the three lambs home to be bottle-raised. "Waylynn," as the girls named her (because of her voice), has settled in. She's pretty cute!
We're expecting more wet weather this week. It won't be quite as cold, but we are preparing for more long nights.
