The Waiting Game

It was clear when Ash was bred. I went to work and the ram was chasing her and she was starting to stand. I came home from work and she was stiffly grazing, the ram was laying on the ground, resting his head on his horns, panting with his tongue out. I marked it on the calendar.


147 days later she should lamb…but sheep have a 5 day window of when they lamb and Ash seems determined to hold it in (like last time) Last year her udder was considerably bigger. She should have lambed Thursday. Its Saturday and we’re still waiting.


She IS starting to act jumpy, so thats a good sign! Her udder is also filling up more. It will happen. Until then, I guess I just need to love on these two:
