Millie has lambed

My pet lamb from last year Millie has lambed twins this morning.  She was scanned for two too.  

She gave birth no problem and is constantly muttering to them, licking them and fussing over them.  She is a bit confused when they go underneath to suck her milk though and keeps walking around in circles so the lambs cannot get any milk!  I have given them some made up colostrum and tried holding Millie to let the lambs suck but she is kicking and will not stand still.  So I turned her up and mum put the lambs on to her udders to suck.  Sometimes hoggs (last years lamb) are like this and she will soon get the hang of it!   

Lots of other sheep and lambs are now outside in the lovely warm sunshine.
