    Hi we only have one remaining ewe. We are totally newbies at lambing and our first ewe had a stroke while lambing. Her udder is filling and dropping, her girly parts are pink / reddish and her belly is big. The babies constantly kick and we have no idea when she was bred. Would pics be helpful .

    Well her udder looks full that's for sure. Her lady parts however do not look as poofy as they should be.
    I would guess one more week!

    Udder is looking a lot closer!

    I don't go by udder size or how puffy her behind is. Those can be clues, but each ewe is different. Some of our ewes get really puffy weeks before lambing and others the day of. My Shetlands don't get puffy at all.
