Last Lamb of this Season

The last lamb has arrived. And guess what...it's a girl! Thank heaven, I got at least two new little ewes to add to the flock. It was quite disheartening to end up with a string of males. 

So it's another single birth, which is perfectly fine with me. The lamb is large, strong, and active. 

She was born in the rain, and it rained solid for the next 24 hours. Mom birthed in the dry field shelter but it wasn't long before this little lamb had to tottle after mom in the rain. But it didn't seem to bother her. I kept an eye on her just in case, but this girl is a robust one and a persistent, aggressive nurser. She is doing just fine.
