Thrice Blessed

It hasn't happened to us since 2003, the first spring we had lambs. But it happened this morning: Triplets! Came out to do chores, and the three happy arrivals were up and getting themselves licked dry by Mom, who still had afterbirth hanging out her rear end. Two males, one female.

The mother ewe is Licorice, and this is her third lambing. Funny to think we just got as many lambs from her as some ewes take three years to produce.
