Actually, Make that Six Cheers
These are the triplets Clare Elizabeth had at about 2am last Sunday.
I arrived at the barn while she was cleaning up the second one. That polka dotted cutie pie with the big pink nose (who Joe says is trouble with a capital T) was born last. They're about 5 hours old here.
Lots more photos below. . .
(These last four photos were taken when they were two days old.)
And these are the triplets Audrey had this morning.
Current lamb count: 16. Ewe lambs: 10. Ram lambs: 6. Sets of triplets: 3. Sets of twins: 3. Singles: just the one big one. Number of pregnant ewes remaining: 13.
Just joining us for lambing season? It's been quite a start!

© FarmgirlFare.com, where we've never had more than one set of triplets born in a lambing season, although during my very first lambing season back in 1996, the very first ewe had quadruplets (!), plus there was a set of triplets. As for all the triplets this year? It's those crazy Katahdin hair sheep.
