Three For Three!

Yesterday evening, for the third day in a row, we had another set of twin lambs born. The mother ewe is Pachelbelle, daughter of Maybelle. (Long story, but all females in that line have names that end in -belle. It was something Maybelle's breeder had done, and we agreed to keep the tradition going.)

After some initial confusion yesterday, we cleared things up: both lambs are male. That makes a total of six little ram lambs born in three days. Wow! We're looking forward to lots of good eating next winter.

Mercy, ya'll are busy these days!

I like the Pachelbelle..we particularly enjoy classical music around here. :-)
I'm really glad that you didn't have to come up with another 'Belle' name, though...I'm sure all of the really easy to come up with ones have been used already. :-)

Named that little doe kid yet?

Rachael -

Sorry for not posting the name of the doe kid yet. MYF ended up going with "Orchid".

Well, I'm glad to hear she has a name. Too bad it wasn't Clover or Crocus...

Hopefully, she won't live up to the Orchid reputation of difficulty! :-)
