Eight lambs in the barn!

It has been an exciting few days in the sheep barn. Our first set of lambs, triplets, were born on Ellie Larson's birthday and she helped settle them in the barn. So now, following tradition, we have a new lamb named Ellie.

 Jiji was named after Jiana Walker and this afternoon  Jiji had quadruplets. All are healthy and well mothered. Grandma Alice says we should name them Eeny Meeny, Miny and Moe.

When Dave came in from the 8 pm barn check he was carrying dirty towels.
Eight lambs out of three moms.

April Fool!
The last set were twins. We actually have nine babies out of three moms!
