Early morning and later afternoon lambs

This little gimmer lamb was born at 5.30 this morning after I'd fed the pet lambs. Tim had to deliver the lamb as she was just very tight, and she took a good bit of getting going, but tonight is up and about and looking fine.
Later this afternoon Tim had to call our local friendly farmer Pete to help deliver these two tup lambs. The first one was upside down and his head had dropped down so Tim was having difficulty getting him out. The second one was breech, so there is no way this poor Scottie ewe would ever have delivered these lambs naturally.
