Brazil has twins

Feeding the ewes this morning Brazil was making quite a racket, initially I thought she was hungry, but when I gave her some feed she ignored it completely. So after feeding the rest of the ewes we decided to hang around to see what she wanted.
We didn't have to wait long as a water bag burst and was quickly followed by a pair of hooves and legs, then nothing and it was obvious that Brazil was struggling to push her little lamb out, so I pulled hard on the legs and out came the first lamb, quickly followed by the second with no assistance from me, (who by the way had remembered to remove her gloves before assisting the birth!!!!).
Brazil has has a tup and ewe lamb. So far we have 9 ewe lambs and 6 tup lambs.
