Barely got this one out!
Oh boy, did we have a big lamb born on Friday. He was a single in a smaller sized ewe and he was so fat we scraped off a bit of hide off of his back getting him out of his mother. This girl got too much food and should have had 2 moderate sized twins in her but instead had a big single. He's really lazy...all he does is eat and sleep. We've named him "SloMo". He's like a big slug but he's built really nicely. We only have 2 ewes yet to lamb so almost done.
Here are some pics of SloMo showing himself...then after quite a long labor, called DH and asked him to come home because I couldn't get this lamb out. Then we found out why. He weighed 16.4 pounds!
