How fitting that on Easter Sunday 2 weeks ago, we had six baby lambs born. It was quite a treat to come home from our Easter dinner with family to see we had some little ones out in the pasture.
Our oldest ewe, Lambchop, had only one this year.
Two other ewes had twins,
One was born with a black mark under his lip, (looks like he's wearing black lipstick.) Grace appropriately named him Licorice.
Marley kept watch all day and tried his best not to pace around.
If he got too close to a baby, the mother head-butted him away. He's learning his place among the sheep.
Unfortunately one of our first year ewes had a stillborn.
BUT today our last ewe, Lily, had TRIPLETS. We've never had one that had three before.
They are all pretty weak. We hope they all pull through. It's terrible when one dies.
But for now, we have 6 ewes and 9 babies. We have a full pasture...but aren't they cute?
I'm linking up to Verde Farm's Farm Friend/Farmgirl Friday with Dandelion House as well.
