First lambs

We got up this morning to find that our first lambs of the year had just been born. One boy, one girl. Mum and babies all doing well. The ewe is a first time mum so she did really well to lamb all on her own. She's also extremely protective of them, stamping her feet whenever we go near, so apologies for the poor quality photos but I didn't want to upset her too much.
















This heralds the start of 4 hourly checks, round the clock, for Eddie so he's going to be pretty knackered over the next few weeks.

I am such a city girl....I don't think I have ever seen white sheep with black spots before. Are they unusual or have I just led a very sheltered life?!
