Latest lamb count

We had one more lamb yesterday morning, a girl. Then yesterday evening another ewe went into labor and i waited and waited on her to lamb. She finally did about 9:00, a big ram lamb. I thought she'd just have the one but then this morning there was a second little ram lamb in with her when i got to the farm. So the current count is 6 ewes delivered, 6 to go, with 5 ram lambs and 5 ewe lambs. We're having a lot with the classic dorper look - white body with a black head and shoulder marking. So far everyone seems to be doing fine. I expect tomorrow might be a busy day - a couple of the ewes look ready to pop any time.
