Winter Lambing Season Has Begun

We went out to feed tonight and saw that one of our pregnant ewes udder was HUGE.  She looked a little dilated as well.  We knew the time was near but then she started giving birth pretty much right then.  For some reason the rams wanted to be around her and pester her.  We even had a bit of a duel between Rambo and one young buck.  I’ve separated her from the rest of the heard except for the banthas.  They’re no big deal as they are very subdued and shouldn’t bother her.  I’ve just stopped watching long enough to post this and will go out and check on her again in a few minutes.  She wasn’t huge so I hope we don’t have a preemie.
