all my jacob ewes have lambed...the count is 11 ewe lambs, 5 ram lambs, a little better than usual. I've nevr had more rams than ewes, but I've only been doing this 10 years. I think it has to do with pastures perpetually in need of lime, which I don't much give them...Usually, the ratio is more 8 to 5 or 7 to 5, so this is an extraordinary year. Now, I have also two shetlands, one had a ram lamb, the other is big as a house, and hasn't popped yet. I've never had anywhere near equal numbers of shetlands: always 3 to 1, ewes to rams, so this is going to be a year in the opposite direction, even if she has two ewe lambs.
