Oh, happy day! At chores tonight when I leaned down to check Geranium’s udder, stripping a teat, a stream of milk sprinkled across my glasses!
It seems, as suggested in Laura Lawson’s book Managing Your Ewe, that the shock and pain of giving birth for the first time could have delayed Geranium’s milk let-down. But thirty-six hours after lambing, the supply has now come in.
The twins are obviously fed and happy. They even made stumbling little prancing efforts.
I do want to start to test for OPP, but not, thank goodness, today.
