It's Lambing Time!

I awoke this morning to an email from Caroline Owens, letting me know that, despite another close call, Princess is doing fine and has a new lamb!  A routine barn check revealed Princess trying to deliver a lamb, who was not only TWICE as big as average, but had one leg back ("shoulder-locked"). But the lamb was otherwise fine, and a bit of twisting and tugging brought her out. Princess instantly bonded to her and had her up and nursing in no time at all. Although the farm usually doesn't keep singles, they have decided to keep this one -- "This lamb has just the vigor we like to see in our breeding stock."
