Baby Shetlands Everywhere!

Triplets this morning and twins this afternoon. Beautiful day to be born in the sun. Mom of the triplets helped clean the other ewe's twins off then tried to take them. Guess 3 wasn't enough for her. It was wonderful to be out there with them, sorting newly sheared fleeces and watching the activity in the pen. One of the triplets was leaping around the pen within 40 minutes of birth. Shetlands are great comic relief.

i can't wait! My shetlands are now due any time, in the next three weeks, or in 5 weeks with the clean up ram. Time will tell. I hope most are sooner than later :)

congrats on all the lambs!
