Our first set of twins

Whilst we were exercising the dogs in the back field we noticed Allium laid down in another paddock. She seemed OK, but in fact she was giving birth and we didn't realise until we saw her in the top field with her twins. (1 ewe lamb, 1 ram lamb).

This meant that we had no room in the barn for her and her lambs, so the first 3 lambs to be born were moved into a new paddock, with their respective mums, which has a shelter, so that we've got some space.

But we're now full again as Chloe and Anya are now in the remaining empty lambing pens as they are due on the 6th April. I hope no one else decides to give birth as we've no lambing pens left. But I'm sure we'll sort something out.
