Anyway, as the top picture shows the lambs were showing signs of hypothermia. So, we jumped right in. We moved Twix in with Snickers and moved Sage into the pen Twix was in. The only problem we had was that the wind was whipping through the pens and we couldn't get the twins warm. The rain and wind of the storm had already begun. We had them under a heat lamp and Mom and I were drying like crazy. The two sweaters we had left to make lamb warmers some how got wet in all the hussle. So we tried everything to get them warm.
After that Dad and I headed back to the barn to finish chores but instead we found Snickers trying to steal Twix's Babies. Snickers didn't even want me bottle feeding Franklin. She not only bit me but head butted me into a charlie horse. At that point Dad helped me take Twix and the Trips back to her pen before I got really hurt.
As of right now, Momma and babies are resting well. They are all warm and dry and safe. Now for the low down on the babies ... We have one girl and one boy. Mom is in love with the girl's markings. She has a white body and black legs. Her face is a bit of black and white and almost a grey. I have to admit that I am just glad they are doing okay. The male is a bit weaker but when Sage's milk comes in eveything will be fine.
Now, these two are pure bred Old English Southdown Babydolls, so that mean I need two Indian tribe names. I am thinking Cheyenne will be our little girl and Ponca will be our little boy.
