So far we've had a doe kid and a ram lamb. On Thursday I did a walk around and saw a doe who was a little restless. Just as the sun was setting I walked back out to check on her, thinking perhaps she would be going into labor soon. Instead I found a ewe wallowing around on the ground in the middle of a nice labor. In about fifteen minutes I saw a little nose and two nice hooves. Mama laid down for one last good push and delivered a healthy black ewe lamb.
Baloo, our Great Pyr X Kangal, kept watch patiently from about ten feet away the entire labor. Once mama had the baby fairly well cleaned up and ready to go he finally let down his guard.
