Lambing Ease

How often have you had to help a Karakul ewe give birth? It seems to me in talking with breeders over the years I hear similar comments “Karakuls are no trouble at lambing time.” “Karakul ewes have their lambs no problem at all .” Without records in front of me to confirm I still cannot remember assisting any more than two young ewes with big single lambs over 12 years of shepherding; and they were just pulls, no internal intervention. Those ewes most likely would have lambed on their own anyway. What has been your experience?
