What a soggy day! We've measured 1.95" of rain since this morning, and it's still raining (at 7 p.m.). I hate to say this, but I'm ready for a break. The forecast shows rain or showers through next Tuesday - I hope the weather people are wrong.
Just two new lambs today - both singles. Everyone seems to be coping with the wet conditions okay. I put the ewes and lambs onto fresh feed this morning, which should help them maintain body temperature through the night.
I checked my list of ewes yet to lamb, and I also checked the appearance of those ewes this morning. I think we have 16 to 18 ewes left to lamb, and maybe 4-5 that are not bred. I expect we'll be done lambing in the next 10 days. Now we just need a bit of sunshine!
