    Every morning when I wake up I look out the window to check on my sheep. This morning I saw a skinny ewe who had been swollen with babies, lambs at her feet. We quickly donned shoes and coats over our PJs and ran outside.

    Ewenique had twins! A white ram lamb with a brown patch over one eye and a black and white spotted little ewe lamb.

    Merry Christmas to us!

    The boy will be cut and grow up to be supper. Yes, I'll keep the ewe lamb and evaluate her as she grows. I am glad to have a twin and hope she grows off good. Last season, Ewenique had twin boys. Excited to have a ewe lamb from her.

    What a wonderful morning surprise.
    The blessing of new life is such a joy.

    Are these the first for the season? Third year?
