Butterball has twins

Butterball (Romney) had twins
last week, the male is white and the female variegated gray with a black tail and zipper along its back. The male lamb came out quite small and is being somewhat rejected by the ewe, in fact Butterball is not particularly good at lambing.

Last year she gave birth to twins in the middle of a horrendous storm in the middle of the night and ended up with her legs pointing up hill and wasn't able to get up to tend to her lambs. She doesn't seem to have the patience that Ruby and Paris have to let the lambs feed. We are supplementing the male with a bottle to help him gain some weight.

Here is a photo of the the female lamb quite content.
