Its beginning to look a lot like lambing time!

24 hours to go!
This is the hospital wing - beds are made, bottles ready, buckets full.
Bring it on!
Jan is a lovely dog. 
She loves being around the stock and is better suited to being a yard dog than a moor dog.
A dog who can patiently stare out a ewe is an invaluable asset particularly when 'mothering on' an orphan lamb.  The ewe is so distracted by the dog that she pays no attention to the 'cuckoo in the nest' and by the time she does she thinks its her own lamb and accepts it.  Just exactly what we want to happen!

Ladies in waiting - all waiting to have twins!
