The Sheep Obstetrics Department at Whispering Acres is pleased to announce the birth of twin ewe lambs Calypso and Clipper, born to Bianca this morning, April 2. Both girls are well and have nursed heartily already. Bianca is also doing well and eating like she might starve otherwise!
Clipper is slightly larger and is a lovely white ewe lamb.
Calypso looks yellowish but that's just mecomium so she is white also but if you look closely, she appears to be wearing "eyeliner" on both eyes! I'm not sure how unusual this is.
Both lambs are active and moving around with relative ease. Here is Calpyso checking out Bianca's horns and thinking that she should probably be a good girl so that Mum won't have to use those horns!We have moved them inside the barn for now and I will take more pictures later when they are drier and fluffier.
We are just so excited and pleased that our first lambs arrived without incident, and that they both appear to be healthy.
