Rosie had Triplets

Rosie is a Tunis/Romanov ewe. I got her from VT. She has a single last year. I have her ewe lamb in the flock. This year she had triplets. A little brown ram lamb with a white face came first. He was followed by a larger black ewe lamb with a white swirl on her forhead. Very shortly after, a little white ewe lamb was born.

For some reason lambs inhale deeply in cold weather. You have to be careful to make sure that the ewe lambs have all of the gunk cleared off the face as fast as possible. The ewe was good about the first one. I had to help witht he second and while getting clean towels, Jenny helped with the third.

They look good. Rosie isn't eating her grain well, so I am watching for Ketosis.
