Babies on the Ground!

Spring is such an exciting time of year on the farm, full of new beginnings and new life. Today , even before spring hits, is full of joy! We have our first lamb on the ground!
Twins born early this morning, both seem healthy and happy hanging out with mom in the pasture.

They look a lot alike, even both have a black patch over their left eyes. 

At first we had a little trouble from this mom-to-be. She seemed to not care for the new babies and was roughly hitting them down to the ground. I had to chase her away so that mom and babies could bond and nurse.  We will keep an eye on this for the next few days to make sure the babies dont get hurt,.
