First lambs for 2009

Onyx was born on our farm in NY in 2007, and now she has had two ewe lambs of her own. Yesterday morning I checked her over when feeding everyone, but she didn't look any different really than she had for the past week. However, when I went out just after 2pm for another look (not expecting anything), there she was with two new lambs, and they were both up and had already nursed.

This is Onyx in 2007. She is the black lamb. Her mother was Orange.

And this is Onyx and her own two black ewe lambs.
