We purchased several sheep in February and two weeks later, one had two healthy lambs! As luck would have it, the lambs were born during the cold snap in late-February during the only sub-zero temperatures of the year. There were several later nights and early mornings when Jim and I cared for the Mom. Wearing our warmest winter outdoor clothing, we took turns camping out in the barn to monitor her progress! The wood shavings were added to the pen to help keep the little guys warm. All are doing very well. Today, another two lambs were born in much warmer temperatures of about 50º.
