Awww, those three are SO cute! It's a great photo Susan! :)
Thanks, Bonnie. You never realize just how rarely triplets all stop moving and face the same direction until you try to take a picture of them, lol. I was tickled when I snapped this one. And I love the reflection of their heads in the water. :)
Those little faces are ADORABLE!!!
Love those little pink noses!
Aww... I was wondering how she was doing! I felt SO BAD for her when she was looking ready to go. Not surprised that there were three--she was HUGE!
Yes, poor Friendly got to be so big near the end of her pregnancy that she could barely waddle around. And then the three babies were stuck inside her and wouldn't come out - but that's a whole other story I'm hoping to tell one of these days. In the meantime, we're ALL glad to have these little lambs safely on the ground. :)
Congratulations to Friendly and you! Great job, all!
do you have to bottle feed any of them or is she able to feed them sufficiently. Real beauties.
All three lambs are nursing, but the two biggest ones also get supplemental bottles of raw Jersey milk several times a day (along with another full time bottle baby whose mother rejected him). The littlest lamb isn't interested in a bottle but is just happy to get more time alone at the milk bar. ;)
What a cute picture! Mom does look a little tired though! :)
You are killing me with all your cuties!
Congratulations to Friendly and her adorable babies! They are too, too precious. How's the lamb count these days? Still a few more waiting to make their appearance? You obviously have your hands full, don't you?
I don't even want to imagine what it felt like to have all three of those INSIDE her. Poor Friendly!
I saw your pic of Friendly looking terribly huge and about to pop any minute and wondered if my ewe was going to have triplets because she was about as big. My ewe ended up with quadruplets!
