Tulips and Triplets

Slept in this morning.

Well, technically I didn't, but I only had 30 mins to get to work. So I woke Jari up to go feed the baby. She came back in with news I wasn't terribly surprised to hear; Eliza, my dorset ewe, had triplets! Two ewes and a ram lamb. I had a feeling she was close so I had Jari and KC (AKA Kevin) bring her in to the jugs last night. She had triplets a couple years ago and did a kick-ass job of raising them! Scuze the explitive, but its appropriate.

Now it looks as if our tunis ewe Ewenice is getting close, swollen in all the right places! Had them bring her in last night also.

Tulips? I don't remember having so many! They are all along the flower/weed bed now! And somemore of the 'unknown' plant... killin' me!
These I thought were the dafs that smell like gardenias, but they are just regular kings; the smelly ones come in three to a stem and are white.
A couple more days and I will have COLOR in my yard! YAAAAYYY! Wont be able to see them from the road, but I really don't care :)

This is just a cute picture... Twins born on th 15th.
Jari has her 4-H lambing presentation to do this afternoon, will post pics tomorrow!

Congratulations on the triplets! Way to go, mommy ewe. Good luck with the remaining lamb crop.

Great pictures! I'm glad the triplets are doing fine - and their mum, too. :)
Hopefully we'll have nekked sheep here next Friday - another shepherd was kind enough to set up shearing with her shearer!

then I'll be able to see who's too fat. :) Amanda always looks like a tcik about to pop just before lambing. I can' hardly wait until mid-April! Thanks for sharing!
