This is what happened a second later.
Mounds, the white Rambouillet, is in the last stages of pregnancy and looks horribly depressed. I am feeding her lots of grain, since she looks like she could go into toxemia. The longer she goes, the more I think twins.
Absinthe found a quiet resting spot in with Watusi the new alpaca. The young does are popping in and out of his pen. He will not get lonely.
The black ewe in the foreground is calling for her lamb - standing right behind her. Such a racket!
On this occasion, the lamb responded and came to drink. If the lamb is not hungry, she will ignore her mother. This lamb hangs out more with another ewe than with her own mother. She is a very fast runner and she starts stampedes on a regular basis.
