HoneyBea gets into the act

HoneyBea greets her lambs

HoneyBea had her lambs this evening.  A ram and a ewe, just like last year.  The ram was over 12 pounds and I think he was giving her a little bit of a hard time.  I thought we were going to have to help him out.  But she was a canny girl:  when I went back to the house to get the OB lube and towels, she popped them both out.  It’s nice not to have too late an evening.  I just checked on them and they have such full bellies that they looked like they were in a sugar coma!  HoneyBea is a fantastic mother and she makes sure to get those babies up when it’s time for a feeding.  She’s not really gentle about it, either!  They are looking good, and the ram has the white “teardrops” that show he has the blue gene.  Real beauties.
