Lambs are jumping everywhere

We added 3 bred ewes to the flock in November and not knowing their breeding history it was a surprise when one lambed in December with triplets.  Expected lambing dates were thought to be January.  Of this set the biggest bar far is one we named Labam.  A very striking panda colored ram lamb.  Getting on track in January another ewe lambed with twins.  Actually had two ewes lamb on this day each with a set of twins.  The last of the new trio was a huge ewe named Flower.... she kept us waiting & waiting & waiting.... finally last Saturday night about 10 pm she lambed with a set of triplets.  Out of 10 ewes there were 18 lambs born between Dec 2013 - Mar 2014.  We have our eye on a few for showing at the Country Fair in early August.

As they mature there will be very nice ewe and ram lambs for sale.
