|March 28th. The first Icelandic lambs of
the season are out of our dear Martha. She
produced twin ewe lambs yet again this year.
I noticed she was in labor amongst the rest
of the ewes in the barn avoiding the driving
rain and wind. So I went over to a lambing
pen, opened it and asked her if she wanted
some privacy. She walked right in and I shut
the gate. I went in the house to check on
something else, and when I came out 30
minutes later, this is how I found her! The
sire of the lambs is our AI Guffison.
|April 6th. Spring is taking a long time to
come this year, and the ewes are putting
lambing on hold! But this morning Sis had a
lovely white ewe lamb in the barn, nice and
dry and warm. The sire is our AI Throtturson.
|April 11th. Tucked in a quiet and dry corner
of the barn was our sweet Elsie and a single
ram lamb this year out of the Thotturson. He
is a very nicely built, wide backed and sturdy
ram; a nice blend of his genetics.
|April 11th. Stefania had triplets this
afternoon, but the little ewe lamb was
half the size of the two rams and was
not viable. She's a wonderful mom,
so patient for her young ones to be
able to nurse. The epitome of the
perfect Icelandic ewe.
The lambs' sire is LF682B.
