Another two female lambs!
Remember the hogget I wasn't sure if was pregnant at all? Well, in the last two weeks it had become clear that she was but I still was not sure if she had twins or not, she really was still quite small. And she all surprised us today with two tiny but beautiful girls, both vital and sucking :) the smaller one weighs only 2.5 kg and the "big one" only 3. I had noticed that she was pacing and being a bit uncomfortable, so I left her inside and within 15 minutes she had popped them both out. What a surprise Selvaggia! The wild one is now being a lovely mum. Here are the pics:
