White Post Farm Nottinghamshire post live update of ewe giving birth to lamb before announcing after the broadcast ended that another lamb followed which was surprising as an earlier scan had only indicated one baby
White Post Farm have been keeping the public updated on the arrival of their new lambs and had not one, but two new additions yesterday (Tuesday).
In the latest update, the team showed a male lamb that had been born to one of their pedigree Dorset ewes.
A farmer said a scan indicated that only one baby was expected.
Employees of the farm have been providing Facebook live streams showing the growing sheep population at the farm.
A surprise came in a later post when it was revealed that the ewe had given birth to another lamb after the broadcast had stopped.
During the broadcast, the mother could be seen cleaning her first lamb while still pregnant with the other.
The twin, another boy, joined his family in the pen and was seen in a photograph later posted by the farm.
“We have new news of the lamb kind,” said a spokesman from the farm.
“After we finished our live earlier, someone else followed to say hello.
“Our lovely ewe had twins after all, another boy.
“He was slightly smaller than the previous lamb so he arrived like a dream.”
This season the farm has now welcomed three boys and three girls to their flock.
The farm still has several ewes due to give birth soon.
The spokesman added they would update the public when the lambs are named.
An announcement will also be made when lamb and sheep encounters are available for the public.
