First triplet!
« on: April 11, 2015, 03:17:43 pm »
So first triplet of the year and he is gorgeous, I am bottle feeding him as he's the smaller of the three and not as strong. Lambing is progressing well, all the ewes rearing their lambs well. :) :)
the most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, loving concern.

My vet said the males are usually the weakest - the Y chromosome being weaker than the X. That's why there are usually more female than male lambs.
