Saturday Dose of Cute: Three Cheers for Triplets

Actually, Make that Six Cheers

Clare Elizabeth and triplets 1
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.)




Audrey and her triplets
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!

The Daily Donkey 63: Two Anonymous Treat Seekers

© 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.

  8. Oh, they are so cute. And I don't think the polka dot one with be trouble at all!
    Besides, we like to think of problem children as "high caliber".
    Your polka spot baby is one "high caliber" sheep!
