Congratulations on your lamb.
I have talked about the storms and the LACK OF
CORRELATION to birthing. The old wives tale runs
along that a storm and the resulting changes in
barometric pressure induce labor. There is nothing
that really supports that belief in the scientific
If lambs decide to be born and get the labor going,
they will come storm or no storm. We tend to remember
the babies born in a bad storm because we don't want
to be out in it----and therefore believe that more
babies come in stormy weather.
