That is hard to take, I am so sorry. Was this the first lambing for both ewes? If so, it might be worthwhile to rebreed and give them a second chance. The very first lamb born from our first 4 ewes was premature and dead. I considered selling the ewe, it was her first lambing, but I kept her and gave her another chance. She has always had twins and is a great mother. I feel you on the dead lambs, I lost twins once, I held them, wrapped up and warm until they died in my arms somewhere past midnight. Just couldn't take them out to the cold barn to die. Next day I cried and we buried them.
