So DH took an udder shot of Mari, who amazed us this year with triplets in three different solid colors: black, white and brown!
The ewe lamb is white, her brothers are the solids.
(disclaimer: it's a true udder-- though I felt compelled to "touch up" the color on said udder right up under her tail, where evidence of a recent birth experience had not yet washed off in the rain... )
I'm no photoshop pro, it's apparent!
But I digresss. Ta da... Mari and the kids-- er, I mean LAMBS!
while Mari jaws with Abby (Crabby Abby, we call her)-- and Abby's ridiculously splashed-up baby ewe sleeps on the lamb playground ramp. Abby's baby will fade to ... musket? and white, and be splashy only on her legs and face. Oh, and Licorice Snap, black Shetland with white head splashes, looks on from the left, rear-- while her brown ewe and black ram lamb play on the lamb-ramp... The other black ewe, rear, is a Finn-- Heidi, a yearling who hasn't lambed yet.
Next, Bluebell's phaeo-spotted ewe lamb (bonus, who is very nice and not afraid of us). She is pictured with another of Lassi's brown quad ewes.
And have you seen how well my tiniest finn ewe lamb is doing? This one belongs to Kimi-- and nearly succumbed to hypothermia, born out on the lawn on a cool, breezy day. She was the tiniest of triplets, weighing half of what the largest one weighed. We bathed her, blew her dry, fed her bottles and kept her on a heating pad in a laundry basket for 12 hours-- and when she was strong enough to nurse on her feet, we returned her to her mother. Way to go, Kimi, for taking her back! This one is still called Tiny-- 2 lbs 12 oz at birth!
More pics to come, of course! Happy Spring!
