And the winner is....
Despite the fact that Tillie was the ewe we were all watching, Maggie gave birth sometime late this morning to a single black ewe-lamb. While we were both at work, no less. I've been coming home every day in the early afternoon to check, but this one got away from me.
Mother and daughter are doing fine, although I placed them both in the lambing pen very quickly because it's supposed to get quite cold hereabouts tonight.
This lamb is out of Snorri, or she should be, so that's nice. We've wanted a Snorri-ewe for a while, but had to cull Polly, the one we got last year, because of a disease.
