Lambing; tired already!

Was tired + grumpy all day yesterday. Parked outside my house after lambing and got a parking ticket so wasn't a great start to the day.

Back lambing with Cody again tonight, tired but not too bad.
A couple hours in we had a prolapse ewe carrying Triplets so we had to ring the farmer to come and suture her up. Gave her antibiotics so hope she's alright!
Had quite a few triples born so we were adopting them onto singles so that both ewes end up with 2 lambs... to go with their 2 teats!

We started flagging at about 3am so was cup-a-soup o'clock then time goes quite quickly after that 'cos we have to bottle feed the lambs then feed + water the ewes.
Normally get a rush of ewes start lambing at 3 or 4 am as well so have to deal with them and get them penned off.

2012 Lamb count: 16 + 30 = 46
