Another Weigh In

I didn't weigh the new lambs last night right after they were born. I didn't want to upset Chloe anymore than we already did with all of our fussing over her new lambs. They have been nursing like crazy so I may have to deduct a little from their weights this morning.
Ewe lamb, probably named "Cora", weighs 7.5 pounds!
And her older brother weighed in at 9 pounds. Ram 3 weighed 13 pounds at birth and 17 pounds a day and a half ago when he was five days old! I have so much to learn about raising sheep and from everything I have read gathering good data helps. Now I just have to figure out a good system for record keeping.
