    Okay, I'm officially doing the :hair: :GAAH:

    Its been a week since I thought one of my new ewes was going to lamb .. sitting down and isolating herself from the group.

    Still no lambs!!

    I'm starting to think they will never pop ...

    well... eventually I think they have to! I feel exactly the same about my last 2 mule sheep who have been sitting in that barn for over a month now... doing absolutely NOTHING!

    It's really frustrating isn't it?! Ah well the wait should be worth it :wink:

    I dont know, I think these are awfully special sheep that never ever ever lamb ... or maybe they are part elephant :shocked:

    They delight in torturing me. I go out, ah-hah! One is sitting down isolating herself from the group. Nothing. Or, one is licking something on the ground. I get there ... and its hay. or dirt.

    Well, at least I have company in the GrrArgh! :GAAH: :hair: club!

    Nope, no due date. I got them three weeks ago, and the breeder said they could lamb basically from now to 6 weeks away. They had little udders when I go them which have gotten significantly bigger since. I cant check vulvas since the fat tail hangs down in the way, and they are too wild to lift the tail lol I think I'd probably find myself headbutted and thrown out of their enclosure lol

    Grr ... I thought surely I would have lambs by now!
