Carolyn sheep has her lambs in secret

Carolyn didn't appear for the morning feed and when we looked round the fields initially we thought that the little lambs that were in the field were Cloe's, but when she bleated for her lambs and they came running from the barn we realised that the lambs were in actually fact Carolyn's. We brought them into the barn for a quick check over and to ensure that they had a full stomach, which they did, so after a couple of hours in the barn we let the new family out again. We think she had her lambs yesterday, but we were so busy with hedge laying that we'd missed she hadn't come down for the evening feed. Thankfully there were no problems. Another ewe and tup lamb, both beautifully marked. Hector has produced some really good lambs this year.
