Claire has triplets!


This is Claire, Reg# S21316.  She is the last of my ewes to deliver that were bred to Mercury #W00735.  For the last week I have been going out at night and checking on them and again in the morning.  This morning when I went out one was born, it didn't take very long and the rest followed.
Claire ended up giving us two rams and one ewe lamb.

 This little guy was the first one born, he is spotted, appears white but under that baby fluff he is grey.


This is the second born a ewe, has katmoget pattern.  I think she will be grey, she didn't get cleaned off very well yet, but of course mom's a little busy right now.


This is the third born ram, much darker, definitely spotted, not certain about color.  Appears moorit maybe since around the eyes he looks to be brown.

These girls are due next.  Excelsis on the left is due today.  Hopefully we will have more lambs yet today and Constance on the right is as big as can be for her little frame, all uddered up and ready to go.  Hopefully both will have lambs yet this weekend.
