Title: Lambs! Spring has arrived.

My CVM ewe Patty had triplets!

One of my 50% EFriesian/50% Dorset ewes had twins (with my CVM ram, so these should make really nice wool):

My other CVM ewe had a single ram lamb:

I have another 50/50 EF cross ewe to lamb still and my 75% EF/25% Lacaune ewe as well.

Hopefully in a few weeks I can start my milking experiments with the dairy ewes.  Though, Patty the CVM has an udder about 3 times the size of the EF cross ewe, so I might attempt to try milking her, too.

They are so cute when they are small! Congrats!

I'm giving a supplemental bottle to the smallest of the triplets once a day.  She's so adorable, she just runs right up to me and begs now by pushing her little nose into my hands. 

They are adorable.  I could watch them play all day!
